Glenn Beck: The Rosie O'Donnell BP solution



Story: Rosie O'Donnell Wants BP's Assets Seized: 'We Broke the Freakin' Womb of Mother Earth'

GLENN: Let's start with the audio of Rosie O'Donnell who is the first to make my prediction come true that they would just start to announce that it doesn't matter, communist, Marxist. Remember when I said that? I think it was Stu that said, Glenn, that's crazy, that's crazy. It's beginning to happen. You're at the very beginning of it and Rosie O'Donnell is the first sign. Here's what Rosie O'Donnell said about the BP oil spill yesterday.

O'DONNELL: Are you going to go? I don't know. But children are vulnerable to toxic chemicals in crude oil that can disrupt normal growth or development. t.

VOICE: And this is part of what BP should pay for. You know, they are saying they are going to pay for everything. That is a big line of crap.

O'DONNELL: I say seize their assets.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Right now.

VOICE: Yep.

O'DONNELL: Seize their assets today, take over the country, I don't care. Issue an executive order. Say BP, guess what.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Let's watch Rush Limbaugh explode on TV when he talks.

PAT: He's not on TV.

GLENN: Yeah, but that's staying informed, Rosie O'Donnell. Let's seize the company. Call it Marxism or communism, whatever you want. They don't care. They are not afraid of being labeled a communist because they don't have a problem with communism.

Let me play again Bill Maher. You tell me. We now have Rosie O'Donnell saying seize their assets. Communism, call it communism if you want. Seize their assets. Take over the company. Here's Bill Maher. Tell me if this sounds like a republic.

MAHER: But yeah, they are talking about 60 votes, forget this stuff, 60. You can't get Americans to agree on anything 60%. 60% of people don't believe in evolution in this country. He just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said, they're stupid. Just drag them to this. Get healthcare done, you know, with or without them. Make the gang of six an offer they can't refuse. This Max Baucus guy, he needs to wake up tomorrow with an intern's head in his bed.

GLENN: That sure sounds more like Chavez than James Madison. You have Robert Reich coming out and saying this about the BP oil spill.

REICH: We need to have government take BP's operations over at least until this is solved.

GLENN: Now, do you remember, this is the compromise, this is the compromise: Just do it until it's solved. But do you remember when Maxine Waters said the same thing and it was funny because she realized what she was saying: Oh, we're going to socialize... we're going to take overture —

WATERS: And guess what this liberal will be all about. This liberal will be all about socializing...

GLENN: Uh oh.

WATERS: Will be about... basically —

GLENN: Oh, boy.

WATERS: Taking over, and the government running all of your companies.

GLENN: Okay. She said that to the oil companies. And it was funny when she said it because it was so revealing on her. But you thought she was alone. The emergency is here now to do it. The emergency is here. Again play Rosie O'Donnell and then I want to play a new cut for you that also happened last night. Here's Rosie O'Donnell.

O'DONNELL: Are you going to go? I don't know. But children are vulnerable to toxic chemicals in crude oil that can disrupt normal growth or development.

VOICE: And this is part of what BP should pay for. You know, they are saying they are going to pay for everything. That is a big line of crap.

O'DONNELL: I say seize their assets.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Right now.

VOICE: Yep.

O'DONNELL: Seize their assets today, take over the country, I don't care. Issue an executive order. Say BP, guess what.

VOICE: Yeah.

O'DONNELL: Call it socialism, call it communism, call it anything you want. Let's watch Rush Limbaugh explode on TV when he talks.

GLENN: That's pretty incredible. Issue an executive order. I thought we were restoring democracy. I thought we wanted the voice of the people heard. See, this is where the Marxist lie breaks down. They can get you, and as you will see on Friday's show, James Madison on Founding Friday this Friday. James Madison is the architect of the Constitution. Everything in the Constitution is to slow people down. Slow down. They were afraid of emergencies and those people in government that would use emergencies to be able to rush people in and so they wanted everything in there to slow it down because something would happen and people would make a rash decision because that's what people do. They want to do good. But if somebody would learn how to game the system, they could push them into emergencies and you're out of freedom... like that.

So everything was a speed bump. Everything we have done since 1913 was to take the speed bumps away, so there's nothing slowing these people down. Nothing. Now it's just — now, you can't even get 60%. What do you think you could get on just seize, have the president seize the assets of a company and seize a company and just take it over? I would love to see a poll on that. Maybe I'm afraid to see a poll on that. 60%, 70%, 80% against? You'd have to be at least 60% against. I would hope that it's higher, but it wouldn't be in the majority. Just take a company? Through executive order? And you make fun of me for saying that we're headed towards a fascistic state? What, are you crazy? I have to tell you, the lie of these people will be their undoing. You have truth on your side. Now, what happens — let's just play this out because now you're starting to see the things that I warned about actually being said and considered. Play this out in your head. Let's just say that we have a president that would just take a company, seize it. What happens when people rise up and say, that is not who we are. What happens? Do these people say, now let's listen to the other side, let's listen to the people. Or do they say, "Silence them!" Let me go back to Bill Maher. I think he was very clear on it. Wasn't he?

MAHER: You know, they are talking about 60 votes they need, forget this stuff, 60. They can't get Americans to agree on anything 60%. 60% of people don't believe in evolution in this country. He just needs to drag them to it. Like I just said, they're stupid. Just drag them to this. Get healthcare done, you know, with or without them. Make the gang of six an offer they can't refuse. This Max Baucus guy, he needs to wake up tomorrow with an intern's head in his bed.

GLENN: That's incredible. The left, as I told you yesterday, starting to fall apart. Because the people like Rosie O'Donnell, the people like Sean Penn, the people that you've always known are for a Venezuelan revolution, the Van Jones, the revolutionaries. Not the Bill Clintons. The revolutionaries, the William Ayers. They are tired of waiting. As the AFL CIO or was it SEIU said, "We paid for it. We want results." They want their money and they want their utopia. Move aside, grandma. It's my turn.

So they have to soothe the uber left, and here is the soothing voice of Barney Frank.

FRANK: Reach out to your fellow young people and make it clear to them that while they may not be satisfied with everything we've done — we're not satisfied with everything we've done. The way to cure that is to give us more authority and more ability.

PAT: (Laughing). You are right about the soothing part, too. It's great.

GLENN: To give more authority. We're talking about Constitution! Give them more authority! That's what this is all about. Who has the authority? Who's going to force people to do it? You give us more authority; I'll do it. I'll get it done. That's pretty intense stuff, and anybody who doesn't see it is a fool or an accomplice.

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.
