Glenn Beck: 'Capsize Guam' Congressman at it again

Guam in danger?

GLENN: One of my favorite guys in congress is the guy who said that Guam could capsize.

PAT: Hank Johnson is shooting up the charts.

GLENN: Hank Johnson is — whatever, I don't know where he's from, I don't know what he does.

PAT: Georgia.

GLENN: He's from Georgia?

PAT: Yeah, uh huh.

GLENN: He's not Cynthia McKinney's —

STU: I believe he is, replaced Cynthia McKinney.

PAT: I believe he is from that district if I'm not mistaken.

GLENN: I would like to go down to that district. I would like to see if there's something in the water. Is there some Dow Chemical plant that has been dumping things into the water?

PAT: Surely there's got to be somebody better who lives in the district.

GLENN: Van Jones has said that these companies are poisoning people. I'd like to see if that is possible.

STU: And they say you don't care about the environment. Look at that.

GLENN: Exactly right. I mean, you elect Cynthia McKinney and then Hank Johnson? Hank Johnson, play the super classic, my favorite on Guam.

PAT: Yeah, because

GLENN: Doesn't get any better.

JOHNSON: My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.

PAT: That's scary.

GLENN: That's heavy. That's a lot of population on one side.

PAT: Well, that's 7,000 extra Marines that would be sent over there.

GLENN: What we need to do is make sure that everybody is evenly spaced.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: If we land some Marines on the left side of the island, make sure you land the same number of Marines on the right side of the island, front and back.

PAT: At exactly the same time.

GLENN: Front and back. Yes. One foot on...

PAT: That's coordinated.

GLENN: How many times, how many times have you been in an island where you are like, whoa, whoa, whoa! And then the whole thing capsizes and gets everybody all wet?

PAT: Happened to me three times.

GLENN: Did it really?

PAT: Three times. Manhattan completely capsized three times last week.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? That's why Jamaica's not overpopulated.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: The Bahamas, not overpopulated. Everybody, you start all over again, ground zero. The only people — you know those boots that you hang upside down and

PAT: Antigravity boots? Uh huh.

GLENN: You're wearing those.

PAT: I think they were prominently featured in one of the Star Trek episodes.

GLENN: Exactly right. And what happens? The island flips over, everybody falls down to the bottom of the ocean and then the island flips back over and only the people wearing antigravity boots are the ones still able to live on the island.

PAT: They're saved.

GLENN: You wouldn't want a floaty for the island. You need it for the Guamanese.

STU: Okay, that's a good point. Maybe that's not why it's not passing.

GLENN: All right. So here's the latest soon to be classic from Hank Johnson.

JOHNSON: Let's get right down to it. Why are the Republicans opposed to restricting campaign donations in American campaigns both local, state and federal?

PAT: First Amendment speech.

VOICE: Why? Because Republicans favor big business.

PAT: Oh.

VOICE: And big business favors Republicans.

GLENN: Okay, hold on just a second. Stop for just a second. Quick, Stu, who was the largest contributor oil companies

PAT: Well, wait. You are getting ahead of yourself. Let him say it.

STU: No.

PAT: Wait for it.

GLENN: He doesn't say it.

PAT: Wait for it.

JOHNSON: More Republicans getting elected, both local, state and federal. What it means is that BP, a corporate wrongdoer, foreign corporation can influence elections.

PAT: Yeah.

JOHNSON: It means Goldman Sachs and other corporations.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh

PAT: And BP!


PAT: Biggest contributors to Barack Obama.

GLENN: Barack Obama.

STU: That is unreal.

GLENN: That is incredible.

PAT: Is that fantastic?

GLENN: You know what happened?

PAT: This guy's a gold mine.

GLENN: He may have been wearing antigravity boots.

PAT: He may have.

GLENN: And when the island flipped back up, he hit himself in the head real hard accidentally. He's still a little dizzy.... because nothing's really making sense as it's coming out of his mouth.

PAT: I'm going to Georgia to campaign for and on behalf of Hank Johnson because I want him in congress forever.

GLENN: I want him as president.

PAT: We need him. We need him.

GLENN: I want him as the president. He's fantastic.

PAT: I mean, come on. BP specifically, the biggest contribution they've ever given in the last, 24 years, 26 years? Barack Obama.

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."
