Glenn Beck: 'Freedom' Flotilla? Not so much

GLENN: Okay, we were all bothered by the mosque that is being built at Ground Zero. Pat was ready to become a temporary progressive.

PAT: Oh, absolutely not.

GLENN: And just say, I'm going to find a law to stop it from being built.

PAT: Look, we're a nation of laws. Rule of law, my friend, rule of law.

GLENN: You know what I'm talking about. Right, right.

PAT: Rule of law.

GLENN: I said unless you have any kind of evidence, you don't do that.

PAT: You don't follow the law? Huh.

GLENN: Stop, stop. What are you turning into!

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: What are you turning into?

PAT: That is weird.

GLENN: I'm sorry, I didn't know the Clintons were here.

PAT: When you ask about following the rule of law, nothing. Nothing.

GLENN: Nothing. It just depends on what the definition of "Is" is. It's the spirit as well as the letter of the law. Now I think we could probably join here and Pat, you and I could sing Kumbayah now. Ground Zero mosque imam is linked to this anti Israel flotilla. More specifically, he is part of the group that is funding another group to help organizing the flotilla. Let's see if you can make these connections. The imam behind a proposed mosque near Ground Zero is a prominent member of a group that helps sponsor the pro Palestinian activist who clashed violently with the Israeli commandos at sea. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a key figure in the Malaysian based Perdana Global Peace Organisation. That sounds good. It's got peace in the name. Perdana is the single biggest donor, $366,000,000, for the Free Gaza movement.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: They are the key organizer of the six ship flotilla that tried to break Israel's blockade of the Hamas run Gaza Strip.

PAT: So he's a key figure in this global peace organization.

GLENN: Perdana. Reuters is confirming now the Free Gaza movement whose supporters include William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and that the biggest donation did indeed come from Perdana

Now, I suppose their argument would be, "Well, he's just part of a Global Peace Organisation." "They are only promising civilian resistance in nonviolent direct action." Uh huh. Except they are partnering with another charity, a Turkish charity with terrorist ties. Did he know that the Muslim brotherhood would also — see, you know, here's if — the enemy of my enemy is my friend? Here's where this all grows awry. No, he's not, no. The enemy's not your friend. He is most likely your enemy as well. Here's why I have said be careful, be careful. Tea parties, be careful who you get in bed with. Do they have any kind of values and principles? I was thinking about this driving in today. I heard the tea party endorsements of a few people, including the, is it the Republican that might win against Harry Reid or, you know, the tea party endorsed Republican may take it in Nevada?

PAT: I think the tea party endorsed may hurt the stronger Republican in the race and thus —

GLENN: I heard today that she may win. That's what I heard.

PAT: That the tea party person may win?

GLENN: That's what I heard on, I think it was on Fox. Maybe I misheard it.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Because I know I didn't hear that last week.

PAT: Yeah, a couple of days before. I haven't been following it that closely. But they were saying that the tea party person might hurt the Republican and thus Harry Reid might sneak through.

GLENN: So here is, here's what I'm — here's what I was thinking this morning: Well, it's great that the tea party is endorsing people and that's, you know, that's great that they have, you know, a power base, if you will. They are saying we may not win very much today but we will in two years because they are growing their structure, et cetera, et cetera. But what are their values and their principles? And that's why we put those in front for 9/12 project. You've got to have values and principles. What are they? These groups that are, you know, they are claiming that they are innocent, "No, we're just peace activists." Okay, hang on just a second. You're a peace activist and you're with the two founders of the Weather Underground who do not deny terrorism as a tactic. They wish they did more. They wish they did more because Saul Alinsky, the ends justify the means. Well, if you go down that road, you are going to be a terrorist. The ends don't justify the means.

So they are sitting here with known terrorists and yet they are claiming to be a peace organization. Then they get into bed with another terrorist organization. There are like four countries that say this IHH is a terrorist organization. Then you have the Muslim brotherhood. The Muslim brotherhood is the worst. Now, is this, is it possible that all of these people are just like, hey, I didn't know. Is it possible that this, what is it, Perdana Global Peace Organisation doesn't know when they are the major funder of this flotilla? That they've got terrorists on board? I mean, I find that hard to believe. And one of the major, what is it, board members, prominent member of the group is how he's described by Reuters now is the imam for the Ground Zero mosque. Okay, that's enough for me to say, hang on just a second; we need to look at your permits. With you not based on, because I don't want a mosque here. I want to know who you are. It is time for a real vetting of this group.

PAT: But they don't get one.

GLENN: I bet they don't, either. Well, they won't because the Department of Justice, they won't look.

PAT: Nope.

GLENN: Which brings you back to, why?

The question you have to answer is, is Barack Obama, A, is Barack Obama the president or is he a puppet? I've never believed in a puppet regime, never. I don't believe in the Star Chamber and the — you know, I believe in the Bilderbergers because they met this weekend. But I don't believe it's really that much of a stretch to figure out what they are talking about. You know, we don't have the records but, yeah? And, you don't have a record of a lot of things that are private. I don't think it's a stretch to figure out what they were talking about this weekend. They were talking about the destruction of the Euro, is America going to survive, what is the rest of the world going to look like, et cetera, et cetera. And if you listen to the people who are in that, if you listen to their words outside of that meeting, you know where they stand.

Here's — you don't need the Star Chamber, but when it comes to this president, you have to ask yourself, is he the guy. Or is it based in the Center For American Progress with George Soros? Is he the guy? That's the first question. Did he design all of this? Because I don't think so. I mean, we could show you the evidence that this stuff has been in the works since the early 1990s. He was selected before he was elected. And those are the words of Jeremiah Wright — or no, sorry, Louis Farrakhan. I think he might be — that may be the only thing I've ever heard from Louis Farrakhan that I may agree with. You could at least make the case.

The second question you have to believe — or you have to answer is which side — can you —

PAT: Sorry.

GLENN: Which side is he on? Is he a guy who believes like Van Jones or is he a guy who's more like Bill Clinton? They've cobbled together this coalition of radicals, of quite honestly Bill Ayers, terrorist. Jim Jones? Terrorist. They've cobbled together this coalition. Where does Barack Obama stand?

There is an economic collapse of third-world proportions on America's horizon. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden hinted at it in statements last week: "Capitalism … has not been serving our economy as well as it should" and "We're about to … literally change the trajectory of our nation for years and possibly decades to come."

The changes the Democratic Party already has in the works are clearly destructive. You have felt it over the last year and a half, in a small supply chain inconvenience here, an incremental price rise there. You've sensed that something is very wrong. It's rumblings of the Great Reset.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to break down how America's traditional economic strengths are being severely undermined and, in many ways, systematically torn down by the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.

This is not "building back better"; this is a managed decline to bring America down to the rest of the world's standard of living. Glenn challenges: Don't let them convince you these are just first world problems. That's the point. America IS a wealthy nation, but we are heading quickly into a second- and third-world collapse. Glenn provides solutions for the managed decline and how you can prepare for the reset that is already in motion.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck broke down today's inflation, explaining what it is and giving proof that those at the top — politicians and world elite — continue to take advantage of our declining economy to advance their own agenda. He also revealed how a recent decision by Citibank and powerful investment management company, BlackRock, not only puts the U.S. further behind but also allows for China to gain worldwide control.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.
