Glenn Beck: Huffpo humiliation


The Overton Window, coming Tuesday, June 15

GLENN: Well, the book is —

PAT: How about that nursery rhyme that you wrote?

GLENN: The book that is coming out, play the trailer yet again if you can. This is for the trailer. You can find it at GlennBeck.com. Time magazine said it's one of the most epic book trailers of all time. Go ahead. Go ahead.

(Trailer plays)

GLENN: Stop. Now, we've made that into a little trailer, a video, and it's unbelievable. And pass it all to your friends because it's going to drive your liberal friends out of their minds. But don't tell them this. Just like we didn't tell any — we didn't tell anybody because we knew exactly what they would do. If it has my name on it, it's got to be tripe!

STU: It's stupid, simple.

GLENN: It's stupid, simple, doesn't make any sense.

PAT: Dr. Seussian, I mean, the rhyme structure is stupid.

GLENN: That is a poem called the Gods of the Copy Book Headings. It was published October 1919 — wait for it — just by, just by Rudyard Kipling.

PAT: Who? What?

GLENN: Rudyard Kipling.

PAT: Rudyard Kipling?

GLENN: That's it. But that's it.

PAT: Is he some sort of

GLENN: I think he may have won a Nobel

PAT: Dr. Seussian sort of prize? Don't you love that? This idiot couldn't rhyme

GLENN: Yeah. He's an idiot.

PAT: a nursery school rhyme.

GLENN: He's an idiot. So the Huffington Post, when they published, "It doesn't make any sense, doesn't make any sense, it's crazy!" No, no, no. Let me show you crazy. When we get to writers, let me show you crazy. Here's your beloved George Bernard Shaw. This is crazy.

(Audio plays)

GLENN: Okay. If you couldn't understand that —

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Because it is very, very old, that's George Bernard Shaw saying, you must know at least a dozen people that just have no use to society. So bring them up and say, "Sir, madam, what use are you to society." And if you can't justify your use, we can't keep you alive. We don't have to keep you alive. He said he knows at least a half a dozen people that he would like to kill.

PAT: In a nice way.

GLENN: I mean, he wants he doesn't want to do it in a mean spirited sort of way

STU: Yeah, not in any unkind or personal spirit

PAT: No, of course.

GLENN: He just said that, not in an unkind way. Just wants to kill them but not in an unkind way.

PAT: Sweetly.

STU: He doesn't want to I don't want to punish anyone.



The Overton Window Trailer

GLENN: I want you to know that's George Bernard Shaw, that's not — that's him talking. That's not a play or anything else that we're all told to respect him so much. He was nuts! And if you would have listened to him, he would have led to mass murder. Art, art would be the Gods of the Copy Book Headings.

Now, I personally think you can read this either way and this is what part of it, happens in the book. It is two of the main characters — I don't want to give too much away but two of the main characters read it differently. And one reads it like Woodrow Wilson would have and the other one doesn't. But let me give you — let me just give you a couple of highlights here, last four stanzas by robbing selective Peter to pay for collective Paul: But though they thought we had plenty of money, that there was nothing our money could buy. And the Gods of the Copy Book Headings said if you don't work, you die. Then the gods of the market tumbled and their smooth tongue wizards withdrew and the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true. That all is not gold that glitters and two and two make four, and the Gods of the Copy Book Headings lent up to explain it once more. As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of man. There are only four things certain since social progress began. That the dog returns to his vomit and the sow returns to her mire and the burnt fool's bandaged finger goes wobbling back to the fire. And that after all this is accomplished and the brave new world begins, when all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins. As sure as water will wet us, as sure as fire will burn, the Gods of the Copy Book Headings with terror and slaughter return. More in a second.

(OUT 10:30)

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. I'm trying to figure out, and I haven't done my homework on Rudyard Kipling and, you know, I'm going to now because I'm so fascinated by this response from the left. The trailer that we have available at GlennBeck.com for the Overton Window which comes out this next Tuesday, and it is a great read. I know there's a bunch of people that are reviewing it. I think the Washington Post is reviewing it, USA Today is reviewing it. You know, they were going to do a big front page thing with me for the Overton Window and they, you know, wanted pictures taken and I said we'll do our photographer, you know, and they said, no, we'll, you know, — and I just don't — USA Today has never, ever — they are not a takedown paper and they have never, ever been — given me any reason to not trust them by any stretch of the imagination but, boy, so many others have, especially photographers, and I just don't, I'm not going to — you know, I'm just not going to let anybody come in and play with the image. Not that they would. But that's exactly what happened with GQ. That was a —

PAT: Burn me once, shame on — burn me twice...

GLENN: But they are reviewing it and I don't know what they will say about it. I don't know if the New York Times, but I'm sure, I'm sure that it's going to get a fair review (sniffing). Just like it has already on the Huffington Post, say it's crazy as ever because of the poem that we released in this trailer. The poem was written by Rudyard Kipling. Now, I haven't done my homework on Rudyard Kipling but I think he was an English imperialist. So I think he stood against the progressives around the turn of the century. And the reason why he wrote this poem is because his son died, I think in 1915, 16, somewhere in that area. He was really upset. And he was really upset because you have to remember, and this is the history that no one wants to teach. The progressives and the Fabian socialists in England, they are our progressives. These guys are evil, man. Fabian socialists were evil.

PAT: Like George Bernard Shaw.

GLENN: George Bernard Shaw. They were the ones, here the progressive movement, they are so unbelievably racist. I mean, Helen Thomas sounds like a progressive when she says, let them go back to Germany, let them go back to — that's the attitude of the Fabian socialists, the attitude of the early 20th century progressives. And they are — they were all for eugenics. They were the ones who pushed it. They were all for propaganda, and the — I wish I had this other book. I need a library in the studio. This book that I'm reading on Christianity in the early turn of the century with the progressives, they actually said that they thought that Europe was so awful that if they could just kill a bunch of people in Europe with World War I, it would provide a collective redemption for Europe and they would have a chance to start all over again. So these so called Christian progressives, Fabian socialists were looking to mass slaughter people in World War I. When Kipling's son died, he was a little upset, a little upset. And if you look at some of these, promised full of life, which started by loving our neighbor and ended by loving his wife, 'til our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith, and the Gods of the Copy Book Headings said the wages of sin is death. This is what — the Gods of the Copy Book Headings, do you remember? You may have seen them. You probably, you know, you probably didn't use them. We used books similar to them. Do you remember those books when we first got into school and you would open them up and it would be a page full of the lines and remember the little dotted line in between? And they were the big things that you could write on and the little dotted line about halfway through. And it was when you were practicing your cursive writing. The copy book, those were called copy books. And copy book headings would be the thing at the top that you would have to write. And the social progressives, the Fabian socialist, those you know who were the elites would write things in those keep books. Well, it was indoctrination. And so our kids were writing down things that the progressives wanted — can you imagine the power of indoctrination? Because you have to write that sentence over and over again until you get it right. That's what the copy book headings were. The gods were the ones who told your children what to write. I mean, does any of this sound like today? It's the gods of the school board. It's the gods of the textbooks, the Gods of the Copy Book Headings. Then the gods of the market tumbled and their smooth tongue wizards withdrew. So we haven't had that yet. They haven't withdrawn yet. Did you hear, do you have the audio of Bernanke from yesterday? You've got to hear this audio from Bernanke. He said two things. Do you have both pieces or just the one?

PAT: I have just the one so far.

GLENN: All right. So here's —

PAT: Where there's no exits.

GLENN: Okay. So he says yesterday, "I don't understand why gold is going through the roof. I don't understand this attraction to gold." He also said this yesterday.

BERNANKE: Any expansion of further fiscal support with other measures that reassure markets that, in fact, our deficits will be controlled in the medium term.

VOICE: And do you write now see any exit strategy, physical exit strategy out of the United States congress?

BERNANKE: Well, we have this deficit commission that Mr. Ryan is on and Mrs. Spratt but — and I hope that they will come up with some good recommendations, but right now there's not anything on the table at this point.

GLENN: Hmmm.

PAT: We've got nothing going on right now, no plan.

GLENN: All right. So the United States doesn't have an exit strategy on fiscal spending and overspending. But I don't understand why gold is going through the roof. What's up with that? Then the gods of the market tumbled and their smooth tongue wizards withdrew. Put yourself in England after World War I where it was mass slaughter. And then the flu pandemic which came from the war. Imagine the death and destruction, and England is now broke. England is in debt to her eyeballs, to us. And the hearts of the meanest were humbled. Who were the meanest? Couldn't you say that after 9/11 happened? How many people, we all stood shoulder to shoulder. Didn't matter what — didn't matter. We were just all people again. We were humbled. The hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true, that all that is — that all is not gold that glitters. I love this. And two and two make four. Two and two make four. Isn't this what we're saying right now? Wait a minute, guys, guys, you can't spend this and print this because here's what the answer is. Guys, look at this guy, look at this guy, look at what they say. Where do you think they are going? What are they missing?

We are in a world again that two and two doesn't equal four anymore. And we're standing around going, wait a minute, what? And the Gods of the Copy Book Headings lent up to explain it once more.

Now, listen to these lines with the context of today and the context of Rudyard Kipling, in 1919: As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of man. There are only four things certain since social progress began. That the dog returns to his vomit and the sow returns to his mire and the burnt fool's bandaged finger, fool, sticks his hand in the fire. He pulls it out: Ow, that hurt. Bandages it back up. The burnt fool's bandaged finger goes wobbling back to the fire. Here is his advice in 1919 after he saw Fabian socialism, after he saw what happened in World War I, after he saw total destruction, after he saw all of the stuff that the progressives were bringing to the world. It's going to happen again. You burn your hand, they are going to bandage it up and then you are going to go right back to the fire. And after all this is accomplished and the brave new world begins — what is the brave new world? When all men are paid for existing. What do you call welfare? This is before welfare. When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins. Too big to fail. As surely as water will wet us, as surely as fire will burn, the Gods of the Copy Book Headings — in other words, those who are indoctrinating our children, telling them what to write over and over again: No, no, two plus two is eight. The Gods of the Copy Book Headings with terror and slaughter return. Find out how it plays a role in the Overton Window. The book comes out Tuesday.

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.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."
