Glenn Beck: Is Obama a conspiracy theorist?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Right now all around this country.

GLENN: Country.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: There are groups with harmless sounding names like Americans For Prosperity who are running millions of dollars of ads against Democratic candidates, all across the country. And they don't have to say who exactly the Americans For Prosperity are.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: You don't know if it's a foreign controlled.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: You don't know if it's a big oil company.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Or a big bank.

PAT: I mean, they could be anybody. How does this guy, how does he think he could get away with this when he's got so many there are so many leftist organizations from, you know

GLENN: Because he has the press. When you have organizations like the Tides Foundation and Media Matters and moveon.org and the Apollo Alliance and I mean

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We can name a hundred of them. SEIU, AFL CIO, you've got these organizations that are pumping it out, Media Matters, moveon.org, pumping it out to the press, then pumping it out to active college students. There's the key, active college students are using all of the new media.

STU: As specifically underscored in that Weather Underground manifesto we talked about. That's exactly what they talked about.

GLENN: Right. Then you have, then you have the unions which are pumping it through the body of, what is that, 10% of the American population are union members? I mean, I can't even go buy a firehouse now. Because the unions have been turned against me on, you know, the firemen's unions

STU: The firemen's unions have been turned against you?



Glenn Beck is seen here on the Insider Extreme broadcast, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

GLENN: Oh, yeah, big time. Big time.

STU: Because I mean, every union member that I speak with isn't influenced by their leadership.

GLENN: I hope that's true.

STU: And I think that regular people

GLENN: I don't have a problem with the regular people. I don't have a problem with the union members. I have a problem with the union leaders, the nation, too.

STU: It's a problem with the leaders. But again this is one of many groups that have one specific goal with you right now which is fill the space. There's a decent amount of people still in America that haven't made up their mind on you, you know, for or against.

GLENN: I find that hard to believe.

STU: It is hard to believe, but it's true and, you know, a lot of people don't pay attention and they have to get this pumped out all the time. There's a race of the undecideds, and they sit there and they peck away all the time in a quantity sort of way, not quality. They don't go for quality attacks. It's just quantity.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Have you noticed? For instance, like Media Matters, that's not even reflected I mean, it's always been sketchy. But now it's almost like, Glenn Beck is a Martian.

STU: Yeah, they don't even make an effort anymore.

GLENN: And there will be like four of them that come out.

STU: They have a quota every day to come out with 20 stories about you. I mean, it doesn't matter. They just pick up a sentence and say "Baselessly" next to it. Glenn Beck baselessly says something that we don't need to describe because you you're not going to read the context anyway. That's essentially every headline from these people at this point, and that's their goal is to fill, you know, the space around you with as much negativity as possible so it hopefully influences people who don't matter.

GLENN: You get 10% of the undecideds in the country who just don't pay attention, they don't know who Media Matters is, they don't know that it's all George Soros, they don't know all of this stuff. And so they say, oh, yeah, he's a racist.

STU: Perfect example. The group that started running negative ads about your religion, remember a couple of weeks ago, we were on the road, they were talking about how you equal Hitler, you say Jesus equals Hitler and all this other stuff.

GLENN: Do you have it, Pat? This is Soros, this is Soros money.

STU: Well, but the name of the group is fantastic. It's exactly what Obama's talking about. Faith in Public Life. Well, that sounds fantastic. Everybody loves faith.

GLENN: And you don't know where the money's coming from.

STU: Yeah, where's that money coming from, exactly.

PAT: Wasn't it George Soros money? Wasn't he running the ads?

GLENN: Well, it was George Soros for the parent company, I think, or the parent group. See, this is what they do.

PAT: Launder money.

GLENN: They launder everything. They launder people and money. And they will make one group and then if you figure out that that group's bad, that group just spins off into another group and another group and another group. This is why it sounds like a conspiracy theory when you talk about like the Tides Foundation because it's intentionally set up so complex. Remember when we first found Tides and I had a guy who was an organizational expert --what he does is he goes into companies like IBM and he says, how does the power flow. And, they will say, well, it goes from me to Bob to Ben, and then he studies it. And he's like, no, that's not the power flow. Here's why your company's all screwed up because your power is you don't know what's even going on in your own company. We had him study Tides for about two months and he kept coming back and I mean, the blood was drained out of his face. And he was like, look, I grew up in the Sixties, you know. He said, I'm part of this with this SDS stuff. He said, I remember all these guys. He said, I always thought they were a joke. He said, my gosh, look at this. He said, and it is so complex that no one will ever be able to explain it. It's intentional. It's intentional.

So I guess what you would have to do if you are a listener and a fan is you need to fill

PAT: With positivity. With the truth really.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, just fill it with the truth.

GLENN: See, we're in a race against time. We really are. And it's not enough just to know it and tell your friends, because of the new media that is out. You've got to if you're youth, you've got to make the best use of the new media. You've got to get onto Facebook and Twitter and you've got to push out the truth on the other side. Forget about them. Don't make it about them. Make it about the truth about what is really going on. There's no need to tear them down.

STU: Yeah, and I know you are speaking about the issues here but if I could, I think it's also specifically about you, about Glenn Beck. Because the bottom line is people are spreading lies about you all the time and it's up to, our listeners and the people who know your character and have listened to you for a hundred million hours over the past ten years that they can come out there and say the truth about you, that you are speaking the truth, that these things are taken out of context. I think that's important as well.

GLENN: One of the things I like the most is I've seen on the Internet people just, you know, they get into bash sessions. And don't bash. Don't bash. If they are going to get into a bash session, just walk away from it. There's no good except contention. There's no good that comes out of contention. So get out just get away from it. The best thing I like when people are doing is just saying specifically, give me specifics. Give me specifics. Because they never can. Because that 10 to 30% is just being filled up with people who are just like, he's a racist, he's a bigot, he hates homosexuals, he hates he hates nonhomosexuals. He hates the sun.

STU: The sun? Who's anti sun?

PAT: I haven't seen that ad.

GLENN: You will. Right now -- let me say this: I hate the sun. Now media, Media Matters will come out with a deal, "Glenn Beck baselessly said he hates the sun."

PAT: Why does Glenn Beck hate the sun ?

GLENN: And you will hear people now say, "The guy hates the sun! He's crazy!"

Following the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a transgender activist called for a "Supreme Court Assassination Challenge" on Twitter, according to screenshots captured of the now-deleted tweet.

Activist Eli Erlick, a founding member of Trans Student Educational Resources (TSER) and creator of the controversial "gender identity" teaching tool for children called the "Gender Unicorn," tweeted and later deleted the disturbing remark on Friday, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) also caught a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted.

"The unhinged radical left is calling for the assassination of our Supreme Court Justices. That's not the way to disagree with a decision in America. It is unacceptable, and Biden’s DOJ must immediately act," Blackburn responded on Twitter.

Erlich then tried to play off her call to assassinate Supreme Court justices as a hilarious joke only Gen Z and Millennials would understand, apparently not understanding the seriousness of the attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just three weeks ago.

Erlick isn't the only Left-winger to make incendiary calls since the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision. Here are just a few examples:

  • Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) called on people to “defy" the Supreme Court.
  • Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called for people to get “into the streets” alongside radical communist leader who wants to 'overthrow' the American system.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) yelled "F*** Clarence Thomas" on a public stage for all to see and hear.
  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested that Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh lied to Congress.
  • And of course, "TheView" host Whoopi Goldberg issued a disgusting racist threat toward Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program, BlazeTV hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere took a look at these and other stunning examples of leftist lunacy over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Many members of the far-left already are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ after the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, and the White House has been discussing plans to defy the ruling too. In fact, one idea floated by Biden Administration officials, according to the New York Times, includes providing abortions on military bases. So, will America experience another summer of riots? Are YOUR taxpayer dollars at risk? And what does this mean for deep-blue states? Josh Hammer, legal expert and opinion editor for Newsweek, joins Glenn to discuss what may come next...

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: Josh Hammer, he's the opinion editor of Newsweek. He's the host of the Josh Hammer show. He is really quite brilliant. One of the leading minds in the conservative movement, I think. Josh Hammer joins us now.

To tell us, what did you find in this decision?

JOSH: Glenn, great to be back with you, on such a momentous, and really such an emotional day, honestly. So, you know, look, as you said, this dropped recently. Funny enough, I was in the middle of getting a guest lecture from an organization on the advisory board as to when it drops. So I barely had any time to kind of skim through, let alone guess the concerning dissenting opinions. But it looks like this looks very similar, to the draft opinion that was leaked, by the Politico story, a month and a half ago, in early May. And I think those of us who were praying that the five justices from this leaked draft opinion, would have the fortitude to stiffen their spines against this unprecedented assault. Now knows that our prayers were answered, Glenn. That's really my takeaway right now.

This looks a lot like the leaked opinion. Justice Thomas and Justice Kavanaugh have some reconcurring opinions.

But unbelievable. And really just holding aside the constitutional law stuff for a second hear. Just speaking as pro-lifers, on a day like today, I think we really just need to pause. And I tweeted this out earlier. We need to just be grateful for our half century of pro-life activist forbearers. You know, this -- Glenn, this issue could have gone away after 1973. That was a long time ago. 1973. I mean, this issue could have just gone away. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the pro-life moral activist. Political activist. And, of course, yes. Legal activist. Who fought day in and day out, that makes sure this great injustice stayed front and center of our national, political conscience. And in many days, the culmination of a half century of fighting for truth and justice. But in many ways, it's also a new beginning for the pro-life fight as well, interestingly.

STU: How do you mean a new beginning for the fight? I just it's going to turn, I think we're going to see abortion turn even darker in those states that allow it. Is that -- is that what you're meaning by this?

JOSH: Well, look, for a half century now, Roe vs. Wade, and its project any, specifically, the Planned Parenthood versus Casey case of 1992.

They took away from the states obviously. They arrogated authority away from the states, the ability to attempt to nationally codify one view of the morality of abortion.

It happened to be a profoundly immoral view. So these -- the fight now shifts to the states. And the pro-life activists. And all the 50 states. Especially, obviously in red states. Purple states. I mean, admittedly some blue states like New York and California, probably won't be able to touch them there.

But we have to make sure that our side is well positioned in the state Capitols for every red, purplish, probably even light blue state, to make sure we fight for successful, cogent, and morally consistent pro-life legislation. The state of Oklahoma, actually, just north of Texas. Right where you are now, Glenn. They have been leading on this actually. Governor Kevin Stitt signed into law, a fantastic pro-life bill there in Oklahoma. A few weeks ago. Maybe a month ago or so at this point, that basically just bans abortion straightforward from conception. And there are some -- you know, obviously, likable the mother. So forth. But we really need to start thinking about trying to craft legislation now, at the state level. But to your point, I do fear that the blue states will only double down in their radicalism. Unfortunately within that will only lead to an ever greater divide, in our country, that we have today. But obviously, at the end of the day. We're going to save at the end of the day, millions and millions of unborn children. We are going to save human beings who can grow up to cure cancer, who can win Nobel prices.

I mean, this is just a tremendous win for the human species. I don't know how to say it other than that.

GLENN: I will tell you, I saw the stat, that I think it was last year or the year before. 20 percent of all pregnancies ended in abortion. 20 percent.

JOSH: Wow.

GLENN: That is -- that is a shocking number. And we do have our -- our work cut out for us. Because I -- I think that these states are going to double down. But I think, you know -- God doesn't waste anything. You know, there is no waste with God. Even the -- even the worst things that could possibly happen, turn out to be something good. You know what I mean? You're like, holy cow, how did that just happen.

And I think that evil is going to fully come unmasked. I'm telling you, Josh. I don't know how you feel about this. I think this could be the day of America's Kristallnacht. I can see these pro-life centers being burned to the ground today. They're calling for a night of rage around the country. I think evil is going to show itself. And that will scare the American people, hopefully.

JOSH: You know, I've been thinking about this a lot this week, actually. Because I've been bracing for a new kind of George Floyd summer of love, happening this summer. Coming to a city or suburb near you. Unfortunately, myself. Look, I live in Florida. I know, Glenn, you live in Texas. It is in moments like this, where I do think that where you live matters. And who your mayor is. Who your governor is, matters.

Because law and order and rioting and anarchy is not really a federal issue. It is to a limited extent. June 2020, Tom Cotton wrote this op-ed that was pretty controversial at the time.

I happen to agree with it. Where he said, quote, unquote, send in the troops. And there is some federal legislation from the reconstruction era that would justify that.

But most kind of quelling and quashing of anarchy does happen. Constitutionally speaking, at the state and local level. So at a moment like this, where I fear that you're probably not wrong. I take some solace. That Governor DeSantis is my governor. I think Texans should take some solace, that they are represented by -- by a Republican governor. The legislature there as well. So I -- I fear that you are right. I pray obviously, that no one -- it's hard.

I fear that it's something -- that something bad is happening. At the end of the day, of course. It does not mean that justices cannot do what they are supposed to do. So thank God they did that.

GLENN: So, Josh, have you looked into what the White House has been saying? The White House yesterday. In fact, do we have a clip of -- of this?

What the White House said yesterday, about the guns. And then they were turned to the -- the Scott us ruling, for Roe vs. Wade. Do we have that, please?

JOSH: Will the president accept this decision, even if he disagrees with it?

VOICE: I think it's going to come from the Supreme Court. So it's a decision we certainly are going to respond to. I'll leave it at that. Just like any other Supreme Court decision. Just like the one they did today on guns.

GLENN: So the White House won't say that they're going to accept it.

Which I don't think they will. They're talking now about taking doctors and moving them into places like Oklahoma or Texas, where abortions will be outlawed. And putting doctors on our military bases to perform abortions.

I mean, where does this go, when you have a government, that is in defiance of -- of one branch of the government?

JOSH: So there's a lot to unpack here. So we should start from first principles. The idea of judicial supremacy, and this is a peculiar thing, to say on a day like today, where such a pro-life victory has happened in Italy. But if we're going to be consistent here, the idea of judicial supremacy. The idea that the justices, have the sole and exclusive ability to interpret the Constitution for themselves. And no other Constitutional actor, in article one or article two, let alone the state. Has the ability to tentatively interpret it. That is erroneous. In fact, actually it was really Abraham Lincoln actually, who in the Dred Scott case, famously opposed judicial supremacy and flouted the Dred Scott ruling, at least as it pertains to everybody other than Dred Scott himself. I have actually argued, a former legal scholarship, in a law review article actually, that the Laconian view of how each branch of government should interpret the Constitution for itself, is correct.

Having said that. Having said that, there is a thing called prudence. And there is a thing called comedy. And in a moment like today, when it really does look like -- and I agree with you, that we are now bracing for riots through the streets. When the political rhetoric is at DEFCON one. When people are trying to assassinate Supreme Court justices. I think it would be -- at its bare minimum, a profoundly imprudent act. For the Biden administration, to try to undermine this ruling.

Now, what they might do, is they might try to kind of issue some kind of executive orders, or issue some regulations, that might try to kind of undermine it, at the edges here. But at the end of the day, the idea that this returns to the state. There's not really a whole lot they can do about that. Basically, at this point, throughout the country. Kentucky within West Virginia. Kansas. Whatever. If they want to go ahead and ban abortion, what can the Biden administration literally do about that? I mean, short of sending in the National Guard, to protect Planned Parenthood, if the state legislature of Kentucky goes ahead and bans it. There's not a whole lot they can do. And it's very difficult to envision a world, in which the Biden administration literally sends in troops to red states, to protect Planned Parenthood, if that state legislature goes ahead and bans it. So for practically speaking. This is a lot of tough talk and rhetoric. Obviously the campaign here in 2022. There's not really a whole lot that practically speaking, they can do to actually prevent red and purple states from enacting pro-life legislation.

GLENN: I'm glad to -- I'm glad to hear that. I know that they have been working on things. I mean, he has said, you know, there's executive orders, that I can employ. There are things that I can do. He's talked about a national public health emergency. Which I think is just -- is crazy. But I would hope, that the president would come out and say, we strongly disagree with this. And you're right. The court is not the end all. But the court did not end abortion. It just said, the people should decide. I think that's the best kind of court ruling, on any of it. The people should decide what this is. And send it back to the states. Josh, I thank you very much. Appreciate your time. Was there -- there was another ruling, that came out today. Was it important?

JOSH: Oh, no. In comparison to this. A total nothing burger. A 5-4 decision on Medicare reimbursement related. So nothing, honestly.

GLENN: Great. Thank you very much. Appreciate it, Josh. Josh Hammer, opinion editor for Newsweek. And the host of the Josh Hammer show.

GLENN: There are two things trending on twitter right now.

Number one is praise God.

Number two trend is Night of Rage.

Good verses evil.

Build up or tear down.

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

Photo by Yasin Ozturk/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

We were live on the air when news broke of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
