GLENN: All right. So we're just looking up what would it take to be the

record for getting people out to vote for the midterm election. We went back to

1960, and what is the record since 1960, record turnout for midterm election?

STU: Be 1966, 48.4% turnout. And that I mean, the 60 up until about 1970, it was

over 40%, in '62, '66 and 1970. And then since then it has not cleared 40%.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

STU: Well, last

GLENN: I've never been over what was it in 199 what was it, 4?

STU: 1994 was 38.8.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Which, that was the big turn.

GLENN: That was the big revolution.

STU: And then in 2006 when it went away from Republican control back to

Democratic control, it was only 37.1%. So that's pretty that's insanely

depressing when you think about it.

PAT: It's almost unconscionable. I'm reading a story right now, remember back in

the first Iraqi election when they were under I mean, it was still, when

everything was just in such turmoil and upheaval and there were bombings every

day, I mean hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of Iraqis were dying every

day from terrorist strikes and there was the whole election was under the pol of

you might be blown up either at or on your way to the election. Remember that?

Correspondents reported from Baghdad a turnout of 95% of Baghdadis and 72%

overall in the country. 72%.

STU: That's an awesome term, Baghdadis?

PAT: Baghdadis.

STU: I want to be a Baghdadi. That's awesome.

PAT: You can't.

STU: I can't be a Baghdadi?

GLENN: You can be a Mac daddy but not a Baghdadi.

STU: A Mac daddy but not a Baghdadi?

GLENN: What was the turnout for the last election?

STU: Last election as of presidential obviously is higher, 56.8%, which was the

highest it had been since 1968? Is that right? Scanning it quickly, it looks

like since 1968, which was and 1964 and 1968 were all over 60%. Again we have

not cleared 60 since, but the last two have been up quite a bit.

GLENN: That's amazing. Look at that. Look at that. And what was happening in

1968? That was Vietnam. That was the Great Society. That was a moment very

similar to this where people said we're going in the wrong direction. We're

going, you know, we're going Marxist. We're going the Great Society. That was a

watershed election and it was still 68%. I mean, that's great. Can you imagine

that? And the midterm was 48%?

STU: Yeah, 1966, 48.4.

GLENN: Guys, I got news for ya. If this doesn't motivate your friends and

neighbors to go out and vote. I mean, I know they are all going to say, well,

there's nobody to vote for, blah, blah blah. If this doesn't get you to go to

the polls and stand there and just say, you know what? I'm going to hold my nose

even, vote for a third party, vote for vote for someone, but show them that we

are not going to be weasels anymore. We're not going to be little mice with,

what was it? With O'Donnell's brain cells in them. We're not going to be we're

not going to be sheep led to the slaughter. We are going to lead. If this

doesn't do it, what will? If this doesn't get you've got the Baghdadis going out

and 92%?

PAT: 95.

GLENN: 95%.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Going out to the polls.

PAT: And 72% overall according to a lot of surveys. BBC said 62. So still bigger

than any American election where we've got nothing to fear except maybe being

bored while standing in line for a while. That's what we fear when we go to the

polls: I don't know how long Iraqis stand there. Will they be serving coffee and

doughnuts in line? I don't know if I can do this. I don't have time. I've got

some shopping to do.

STU: Well, you do, you do have to fear, though, when you're walking in and the

campaign workers are just outside of the premises where they are allowed to be

and then they all assault you with their different campaign pitches?

GLENN: You're right. You're right, it is so

STU: That is irritating.

GLENN: It is irritating. And I mean, so much like when you were going to be

blown up in Baghdad.

STU: Exactly what I'm saying. And you know like last time I went to vote, the

wife of the guy running was standing out in front of the polls and you felt bad.

PAT: She was.

STU: She was saying, oh, vote for my husband, and you felt bad. And it's just

like almost being blown up. It's almost the same thing. I mean, it's basically

the exact equivalent.

GLENN: Paul Nunn, who is our artist on staff and done he is, you know, he's

designed so much of everything that we do. Paul, I want a poster made with a

giant purple finger and just says America: Can't We Do Better.

STU: That's great.

GLENN: Adopt someone or bring a friend to the polls. Make a poster with just a

finger, make it, you know, an iconic looking finger, not a picture but an iconic

looking finger with purple ink on it and underneath: America, Can't We Do

Better. This is obscene. I mean really, honestly if we can't, if we get 35% of

the people at this point, the politicians are right. The ACLU is right. The AFL

CIO. All of these people. The George Soros, all of these people. They're right.

PAT: Well, we deserve what we get, too.

GLENN: We do.

PAT: If only 35% of the people show up, we don't care enough. We just don't care

enough.

GLENN: Well, no, hang on just a second. I wouldn't say that we deserve.

STU: We as a society.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: We as a society would deserve.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: Which brings me to my other point. Could we just broker a deal? Seriously

could we just broker a deal? Can't we just take, you know, Texas and I mean,

I'll take Oklahoma, Idaho. You can have one side of the mountains, we'll have

the other side of the mountains. You can have California and everything else.

Just leave us alone. We're going to build a huge wall because you are going to

try to steal everything and you are going to blame it all on us. You'll turn

your people against us when we give you the pick of the states.

PAT: And who are we giving the pick of the states to? Are you talking

progressives?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: So they take Massachusetts, New York.

GLENN: They take the entire Eastern seaboard.

PAT: Okay. And what about the Californians, though? What do we do then?

GLENN: California, they can have California.

PAT: Okay. We just push it into the ocean?

STU: Wait a minute. They are getting wait a minute. They're getting all the

oceanfront property?

PAT: Yeah, let them have it.

STU: What?

PAT: No, we'll still got Texas. We'll have 2200 miles of coastline.

GLENN: Here's what will happen. Within five years this is why we have to have a

wall because they will turn their people against us. We give them all the best

stuff. Within five years they will be blaming it on us and they will be turning

their people against the people behind the walls saying it's their fault, they

did it to us. We'll be so unbelievably prosperous that they won't have any idea

what to do. And so they'll we'll just buy the oceanfront property back. It will

go for a song. Of course, we'll have to buy it back from the Chinese, but

STU: That's a good point.

PAT: Because that's who will be running the country.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: All the progressives.

GLENN: Absolutely.

STU: Do we get Hershey, Pennsylvania? I believe we should have that?

GLENN: No, but I believe we could convince easily Hershey to her part.

STU: Tough to move a town.

GLENN: If you did an Ayn Rand kind of thing where you're like, we're going to

take this part of the country and we're just going to do an experiment on it and

we're going to further the American experiment.

PAT: You choose all of your progressive ideals like

GLENN: We are.

PAT: You say that wealth is one pie, you go ahead and divide it amongst

yourselves, knock yourselves out. We're going to bake pies on this side.

GLENN: Yeah. We're the pie making people. You're the pie taking people.

PAT: See how that works out for you once you run out of pie.

GLENN: And we're going to build a wall because we don't trust you. We're not

going to we're not building any weapons. We'll defend ourselves because you will

turn your population against us. Because you have to have someone to blame.

We're not looking to blame anybody. We're not looking to blame the past, we're

not looking to blame the present, we're not looking to blame the future. We're

just, we're just going to be making things.

PAT: Total fresh start for conservatives and progressives.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That's great. That's a great idea.

 

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences

Terrorists

  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Terrorist

  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Traitors

  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
