Glenn & Rev. Al Sharpton


Learn more about the Restoring Honor Rally, 8/28 in Washington DC...

GLENN: Here's a headline for you.

STU: Okay.

PAT: Give me a headline.

GLENN: Glenn Beck claims that much of what he's done this year in African American study and on air presentation was Al Sharpton's idea.

STU: It's true!

GLENN: Let me explain.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Al Sharpton was on the set. Al Sharpton and I have a decent relationship. I think he's, you know Al Sharpton, you know

PAT: You guys hang out on weekends.

GLENN: Al Sharpton is Al Sharpton.

PAT: How many barbecues and you and Al been to?

GLENN: You know who Al Sharpton is and I marched with Al Sharpton to keep my word.

STU: That's right, against rap music.

GLENN: He came after Don Imus and I said, look, what Don Imus did was stupid, and I said, but you know that's not and really? Don Imus? All this over Don Imus? What about rap music? And he said, well, I march all the time against rap music. I said, do you? He said, yeah. Well, when I do, are you going to march with me? And I said, yeah, I'll march with you. If you are going to do that, I'll march with you. He said to me as we were walking, he said, I can't believe you're here. It wasn't pleasant. It wasn't popular for me to march with Al Sharpton, but I did it because I told him I would.

STU: And you agree on that topic.

GLENN: And I agree on that. As we I did an interview with him as we marched together, arm in arm, I might point out. Locked and linked arms.

PAT: Sweating?

GLENN: And I said to him, I want you to know, Al, I said, I don't agree with intimidation, I don't agree with this kind of you know, you just don't buy the rap album. You don't intimidate, you don't boycott. You just don't buy the album. You speak out against it and you get parents to make sure their kids aren't listening to that crap. And, you know, I said I disagree, but I appreciate it. And he said, I can't believe you showed up. I cannot believe you showed up. And I said, I'm a man of my word.

So we've had you know, we don't agree on very much, but we've had an interesting relationship. He was on my set one time over at Fox and I had him on and we had a great conversation, and he said I think it was on the air. He said at one point, "You know, I like that Faith, Hope, Charity, you know, but I think you should have a few black faces up there." And I said, good idea. There is the genesis. That is the genesis of looking for the black founding fathers. I didn't think of that. Al Sharpton did. I'm stealing history. Well, talk to Al about it because it was his idea.

STU: That's true. And you had credit from magazines, the Root magazine which is a you know, targeted

GLENN: Restoring

STU: African Americans. And they said that, you know, hey, look, we don't agree with Glenn on a lot, but he's told the truth about the founding fathers that were African American.

PAT: Weren't you the number one blackest white guy?

STU: You were.

PAT: Because of it?

GLENN: Number one black white guy.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: I don't know if you were number one but you were on the

PAT: One or two.

GLENN: I think I was for one.

PAT: One or two.

GLENN: I think there was a woman in front of me. She was the blackest white woman.

STU: Right. Congratulations on that, by the way.

GLENN: I think it was Lady Gaga, wasn't it?

PAT: It might have been, or Christina Aguilera.

STU: You guys are always on the same list, you guys are always.

GLENN: But I think I was the number one black white man in America, for that. Well, it was Al Sharpton's idea.

PAT: I would love to I would love to see that headline now. Now that you've said this and it's Al Sharpton's idea, you've knitted that, I'd love to see that splashed all over the place, Mediaite.

GLENN: Can I tell you, let me go a step further. In that same conversation on the air I think it was on the air. It may have been right after, you know, the cameras went off, but I think it was on the air. He said to me something along the lines, we were talking about the tea party and he said and he said it very, almost confrontational. He said, you see? Now do you understand what we've been going through? Now do you understand? And I said, yeah, yeah, I'm beginning to, Al. I've understood it intellectually. I didn't say this to him on the air, but I understood racism intellectually, but most white people have never really experienced it. Their first real experience of an unjust government comes from the Black Panthers. You see the Black Panthers and you are like, wait a minute, this is so clear. This is voter intimidation! Well, that's what people like Martin Luther King and Al Sharpton and everybody else, that's what they went through. That's what we were supposed to stop and fight against, and we did. Not in all cases. But we need to be vigilant. Black and white. And I think there is a historic opportunity to be able to now connect with all colors, because we all get it. And we should all stand there and say it's wrong. Another idea of Al Sharpton's on 8/28. It's fantastic.

PAT: So join us one and all. I mean, this is going to be such a you were describing, you were describing the end of the rally to us right before we went on the air. I actually have chills all over my body just hearing it, the description the way you presented it this morning. It is going to be unbelievable.

GLENN: I kept this close to my chest. I haven't even told these guys until this morning because I just don't want I don't want it to get out. I don't want anybody to know. And I described the ending. It was like right before 9:00. I told everybody what exactly was going to happen on 8/28, the last 10 minutes of it. And I think actually Stu was I mean, you were almost welling up there.

STU: Almost. You know, it's one of those things, because we've been, you know this has been, to this point, largely an exercise in planning for us. I mean, you know, we've been working a lot behind the scenes, what's going to happen, how are these things going to come together, what's the media coverage on it. All that nonsense that goes up to it, and it's just starting to hit me that this thing's actually going to happen, it's this huge historic event that we're actually going to be part of and then when you kind of like you were just saying, it's I have understood it intellectually this whole time. But when you, you know, describe the way this thing is going to end, I mean, it's going to be so powerful. I'm just starting to feel it now. And it's getting exciting.

PAT: You'll cry like a girl.

STU: Yes.

PAT: You'll cry like a little girl.

STU: No doubt about it.

PAT: There's just no question.

GLENN: That's the thing I don't want to do.

STU: Oh, you have no chance, no chance.


PAT: Oh, you don't want to?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Oh, you're gonna oh, please.

GLENN: It's just, I just don't want to but I when I stood at the Lincoln Memorial, what was it, Pat, how many

PAT: Couple of months, two, three months.

GLENN: A couple of months ago. I was so overwhelmed by the weight of it. By the that is a sacred space. When we get there, when we get there, I ask that you would introduce yourself to your fellow audience members. Anybody who is there with your family and everybody else, you introduce and you lock arms. I would love to see that audience locked in arms. You are all different from each other, you don't know each other. You get to know each other. I'd like people to have however many people show up, 100,000 people. I'd like 100,000 friends by the time we walk out.

STU: Yeah. I mean, you've been talking a lot about Woodstock over, you know, the past couple of weeks about how it really is one of those things that, you know, people remember forever. And that's one of the things people talk about, outside of the idiotic sort of nonsense of Woodstock. So many people made such, you know, such great relationships that lasted for such a long time.

PAT: Well, when you are having sex with people you don't know, a lot of times, you know, you might call them up later on in life.

STU: I mean, if you don't

PAT: Say, hey, remember we had sex in Woodstock in the mud?

STU: Remember in the mud?

PAT: We didn't even know each other's names?

GLENN: Your mom actually talked

PAT: Remember that?

GLENN: Jeffy, was it his mom?

STU: Please expand. Please don't stop there. I don't know how to

GLENN: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Yeah, you're right. Was it your mom and his mom that were supposed to go and at the last minute their parents said, no?

STU: Yeah, my mom actually just, I guess there's a concert venue up there now. I don't know if it's in the exact same place or near it. And she just went to a concert up there. And to her it was sort of like this finally getting there because she wanted to go really badly. Her mom said no. Again my grandmother, a very wise woman, very wise to stop her. But she finally got up there. And to her this was like a, you know, 30 I don't know, how many years now? 40 year making.

GLENN: Jeffy said the same thing. I was talking to Jeffy yesterday. Jeffy in the studio?

STU: Yeah.

JEFF: Yeah.

GLENN: Jeffy, who was it?

JEFF: Well, it was my first wife. It wasn't my mother. My first wife. And she had it all set up to go and then ended up not being able to go and was disappointed forever.

STU: Yeah.

JEFF: I mean, we get the Time magazine and the Rolling Stone anniversary issues and she would look through them like, I should have been there.

PAT: Your first wife was old enough to go to Woodstock? How old are you, Jeffy?

STU: He's 84. That's not that bad.

PAT: Wow. Wow.

JEFF: Yeah, that's my first wife. I went the other direction the next two.

GLENN: You went for an older woman, like a much, much, much older woman?

PAT: Like she was 40 when you married her?

GLENN: The first time. You were 20, she was 40? That's really

JEFF: Well

GLENN: disturbing.

STU: Just because it's Jeffy. It's not disturbing in the normal context. Anything Jeffy does is disturbing.

GLENN: Here's the thing. You don't want to miss this. If you've been on the fence, commit. Go. You don't want to miss this.

STU: Yeah, I just had a friend who e mailed me yesterday who had we hadn't really talked about the rally at all and he just said him and his wife to be are going to be going down there.

PAT: You don't need tickets.

STU: Yeah, you don't need tickets.

PAT: People keep asking, how do I get tickets? You don't need tickets. Just go. Just show up.

GLENN: Just go. Leave your signs at home. Leave them at home. You'll understand it when you get there. This is a totally different thing. You'll never I promise you, you will never experience anything like this. You never have experienced anything like this. This is historic. Make sure you're there. Next Saturday, a week from tomorrow at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.


 

The Biden Admin EXPANDED abortion access because they DON'T believe in the Constitution

Joshua Lott / Stringer, JOSEPH PREZIOSO / Contributor | Getty Images

This month has already produced an extreme example of why we need a functional and more conservative Congress in order for America to have a chance at moving forward—because the Left does not believe in the Constitution.

Sure, if you confronted a Democrat in Congress, they would probably claim some sort of allegiance to the Constitution—but as a practical matter, they do not believe in it.

Instead, the Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch. Why? Because it has the furthest reach through all the various departments, and it can move the fastest—in short, because it’s the most dictatorial. It only takes a department head to write a new memo, or even better, the President to sign a new executive order to carry the force of law.

The Left has put all of their eggs in the basket of the executive branch.

Do you recall any of the Left’s favorite Supreme Court decisions over the years—something like gay marriage for example—and how Republicans immediately tried to subvert it, using the executive branch to try to nullify the decision? Yeah, that never happened. But that is exactly what Democrats have done in recent weeks to expand abortion access.

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions. When the miraculous overturning of Roe v. Wade happened last summer, President Biden called it “a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court.”

Democrats only consider the Supreme Court legitimate when they approve of the decisions.

Recently the FDA approved local pharmacies to issue abortion pills. For the first 20 years after these pills were developed, they were not treated like typical prescription drugs. They had to be dispensed in-person by a doctor. That in-person requirement is now gone.

Keep in mind that the Left’s go-to line is that abortion is always about the health and safety of women, yet a 2021 peer-reviewed study found that chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions. Between 2002 and 2015, the rate of abortion-related ER visits following use of the abortion pills increased by 507 percent.

Chemical abortions have a complication rate four times greater than surgical abortions.

And now the Biden administration is making these less-safe abortions much more accessible. Thanks to the FDA’s rule change, Walgreens and CVS have already agreed to dispense abortion pills in states where abortion is legal—effectively turning these stores into new abortion clinics.

As for states that have abortion bans, "Team Biden" announced a new way around those too. Three weeks ago, the Justice Department issued a legal opinion that the U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal. What’s their rationale? That the sender cannot know for sure whether the recipient will use the pills illegally or not. So it’s totally okay.

The U.S. Postal Service is allowed to deliver abortion pills anywhere, even in places where abortion is illegal.

Georgetown Law professor Lawrence Gostin told the Washington Post that this Justice Department opinion is “a major expansion of abortion access in the United States.”

So, to recap—the Biden administration has used the FDA, the Justice Department, and the Post Office, which all fall under the executive branch, to provide an end-run around the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson decision.

Expanding abortion was easy—simple policy tweaks and declarations that carry the force of law without an ounce of input from actual lawmakers in Congress—all because it comes from the grotesque, bloated, apparently pro-death executive branch.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...
