Sean Penn, Journalist?

Interesting "facts" about Sean Penn according to his Wikipedia page (which has been shut down due to vandalism). He attended the Donald Duck school of journalism of Iraq where he is also a Pluto scholar. He has also attended George Soros school on how to be a turd. He finished in 2nd place behind Keith Olbermann. He currently resides in Imaginationland.

GLENN: Then there's this story out of San Francisco. Letter to the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle. Attacked, quote, the increasingly lamebrain paper and it was signed, Sean Penn, former San Francisco Chronicle contributing reporter. It's the same Sean Penn that we know and love. Several years ago during the run-up of the Gulf War, the editor of the San Francisco Chronicle assigned Sean Penn to report on his visits to Iran and Iraq. His writings were the most popular, quote, journalism in the paper. His letter as was in response to a recent article which was satire and it was entitled, "A Modest Proposal for Celebrities on the Skids" and it suggested that if your stardom was in decline, all you have to do was associate yourself with dictators and other authoritarian dictators. That's all you have to do. Just hang out with Hugo Chavez. Well, in the letter to the San Francisco Chronicle, Sean Penn said that Mr. Chavez, who he recently spent more time with was Democratically elected and that dictators don't lose constitutional referendums. He said that his visit to Venezuela was as a journalist.

Stu, will you do me a favor.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: Can you go on Wikipedia for me, and I know this isn't the answer, but it's the fastest right now. And then after Wikipedia, I want you to -- you know, we'll put a real journalist on this. Find out what journalism school Sean Penn graduated from.

STU: I'm sure it will be listed very soon in the Wikipedia entry by many of our listeners.

GLENN: He visited Venezuela as a journalist and then he says he got personal, calling the readers of the San Francisco Chronicle and the editors small-minded cowards and former writers of substance. Now, the editor said, quote, anybody who wants to do journalism can try but whether or not they are a journalist is not a judgment other people -- is not a judgment other people have to make. Whether they are a journalist or not is a judgment -- no, I'm sorry. Whether or not they are journalists -- hang on. Whether they are a journalist or not, yeah, I'm reading it right. Whether or not they are a journalist is a judgment that other people have to make.

Excuse me. Whether or not you are a journalist has everything to do -- did you go to journalism school. It's not, you don't just be -- it's not like knighthood. You just don't appoint someone a journalist, do you? Or is this the NBC theory of journalism? I don't know if you've seen the footage of NBC and the way they are laughing at the Republicans' responses on the economy.

Now, that's fine. I do it all the time. I laugh at the Republicans and the Democratics' responses on the economy. That's my job. But I'm a commentator. Nobody -- and I'll point that out. Nobody on MSNBC will point out that they're commentators. They are putting themselves out there as journalists and I'm sorry but they're not journalists. They may have graduated from journalism school but once you start commenting on the news, then you're a commentator. But nobody seems to want to do that and now the San Francisco Chronicle can apparently just appoint people journalists.

Well, I wonder if anybody will appoint me to be a journalist. Why not? I could go some place and chronicle my time there. Why don't I go to Guantanamo and chronicle my time there? Do you think that the San Francisco chronicle will allow me to go to Guantanamo Bay and write to them as a reporter, as a journalist? Do you think that they would let me? What did he say? I was Democratically elected, blah, blah, blah. I was visiting Venezuela as a journalist.

I'm wondering if I could just say I was visiting as a journalist and they would accept that hogwash from me. Highly doubt it.

You know the one special on TV that I'm actually excited for? Tonight on television? Life After People. I'm only excited for a couple of things because they keep showing, you know, the ads. I saw an ad in the USA Today and another one in the New York Times where it shows the Brooklyn bridge just, you know, falling down in disrepair, vines growing and everything else and I mean, I like the whole, you know, what would happen if these cities started to decay? I would like to see all of that stuff.

But here's the other reason. How do these people -- I mean, they can't be wrong. They can say what life is going to be like on planet Earth without people. Nobody's going to be here to say, wait a minute, this is wrong. They could say anything. "Well, balloon factories will start just making balloons by themselves and it will be a balloon race of people." Is the balloon factory, some big red balloon, we'll point to a blue balloon and say that balloon should be king. They can say anything and they're going to be right because nobody's going to be around to say, "Uh-uh, History Channel got it wrong."

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
