Glenn Beck: Obama's latest progressive appointment

GLENN: Now let me introduce you to who Elizabeth Warren is. Two months ago this is somebody that the president did not, did not appoint as the head of this new Consumer Protection Agency because if he did, he would have to go through the Senate confirmation process. So instead he made her, I guess, executive secretary and the only employee. So by default she's the head. But he can just appoint her to that role.

Two months ago in July she spoke at an event with George Soros and Van Jones. She also spoke at a conference with Soros in March. She's a big, big Soros person. She's a hero of the progressives. Arianna Huffington calls Warren her hero. Michael Moore loves her. Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders urged Obama to pick her. Al Franken wrote a letter in support of her. She spoke at Netroots Nation conference 2010, Building a Progressive Economic Vision. She said then, "Remember Franklin Roosevelt faced his economic royalists. Remember it took him years to get his entire economic package into place. It was tough, but it paid off." Andy Stern tweeted about her the other day. He said Chris Dodd is wrong: The Obama administration should do what is right for consumers and appoint Elizabeth Warren to enforce the new laws fairly. She's not going to be enforcing the laws. She's writing the laws. By the way, she spoke at SEIU at one of their conferences back in 2010, way back in 2010, in May of this year. The AFL CIO has also come out and endorsed Warren. Everyone seems to love Warren, including the attempt to get the Internet to be regulated. Just for your protection, of course. They said that if she's not given real power, there will be hell to be paid. She apparently is someone that the left puts a lot of stock into. If you don't know who she is, she's been the one who has been overseeing TARP to make sure that's been fairly given out. But you've seen her before well, you haven't. But about ten Americans have seen her before. If they saw Capitalism: A Love Story by Michael Moore. Here's what happened.

VOICE: It's to say no more.

MOORE: This is what I've just come to believe is that capitalism in and of itself, at least the capitalism we know now, is, it's immoral, it's not Democratic, and worst of all, it doesn't work. And they've proven it doesn't work.

GLENN: That's Elizabeth Warren.

WARREN: But we made up these rules. And the rules, the rules are of men, of people. We pick what the rules are. The rules have not been written for ordinary families. For the people who actually do the work. We have to rewrite those rules.

GLENN: There she is.

PAT: Can you believe? I mean, I would never have believed it, not in a million years, that these leftists would be out speaking openly right out in public about how much they hate capitalism, they want it destroyed, it doesn't work, I never would have believed it. I never thought I'd see the day.

GLENN: These are the things that they are saying now when they're in trouble. They're in trouble. If you never thought you would see the day that Americans would say these things about the free market and that there would be people in charge, if you never said if you said to yourself, I never thought I would see the day when these people would not only say these things, they would do them. These are the less radical ideas that these people believe. Mark my words. If this is what they say now, once they get these things implemented and they have real true control over everything, fill in this blank. In two to three years what will you fill this blank in with? "I never thought I'd see the day in America when people in Washington and people in charge with real power would..." blank. I don't think anything is too insane to put into that blank. Because there are people, John Holdren, who says he wants to dedevelop the United States. He has advocated sterilants in drinking water. Ezekiel Emanuel who is in the White House has advocated that everyone was 25 once and grandma, I'm sorry, but your time is up. You don't get the healthcare. We have Van Jones who has called for a violent revolution. We have friends and associates of the president who have called for in the past 25 million Americans to be rounded up and put into reeducation centers and if they don't, if they don't take to the reeducation, then they should be liquidated. If you're saying now, I never thought in American history I would hear X, what will that X be in two to three years? And let me ask you one more question. If this doesn't wake you up now, if your neighbors don't get up now after hearing this information. I can understand that they have never heard it because they're encouraged not to hear it. There are very few that have not only said it but even fewer still that have pieced it all together. You're one of those people. It is incumbent on you to peacefully share the word.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
