GLENN: Matt Kibbe from FreedomWorks, let's get an update on what happened yesterday. Matt?

KIBBE: Hey, man, how are you?

GLENN: I'm good, man, how are you?

KIBBE: I'm doing okay. I'm actually in Ohio. Dick Armey and I just spent the last two days rallying the troops on a number of congressional races here. Ohio's sort of Ground Zero in our "Take America Back" plan.

GLENN: How you know, I'm looking at some of the polls and they are all starting to tighten up. What do you think's happening here?

KIBBE: I think that's quite typical in the last two weeks, but I agree with you that we need to make sure that nobody becomes complacent, nobody becomes overly confident that this is going to be easy to take congress back from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid because there is a number of dirty tricks. You watch what the president's been doing. Every day it's a different message, it's a different person or organization to demonize. They are looking for that silver bullet, something that saves them from the judgment of the American people.

GLENN: So tell me what happened yesterday at 6:55.

KIBBE: Well, apparently I'm not a technician but I've been talking to our server folks and I've been talking to our webmaster, and what happened was that somebody got into the server and basically set it up so that if any traffic hits, the server would just shut down. And the timing looks to me to be blatantly politically motivated but we obviously don't know who did it, and we're launching an investigation into that. But it looks like dirty tricks gone actual criminal behavior.

GLENN: Oh, it has to be. Matt, I don't know what your I don't know what your security parameters are on your server systems, but we've had hackers before, and our security for GlennBeck.com and The Blaze and everything else is massive because we are hacked into or I should say we were hacked into all the time. We have seriously upgraded our security a few months back. You have to have done the same thing. So it's not some, you know, it's not some punk kid. That has got to be somebody quite sophisticated.

KIBBE: Yeah, and our server management company is one of the best in the business and they tell me that they have never seen anything like this in the past ten years. So it's a very sophisticated attack, and we also, anticipating this kind of thing, had really ramped up our security over the past year. And we're doing it again. I mean, we've migrated everything to a brand new server and we're launching new security codes. And for now at least we're going to use PayPal to accept donations because it's simply, we don't want to put anybody at risk, and that's our first priority because there's something going on here and we've got to make sure we do everything to stop it.

GLENN: Well, you remember what I mean, that's why they are going after the chamber, because they want their donors list. And you remember what happened with, you know, out in California. I mean, these are brutal, brutal, brutal people. And, you know, Saul Alinsky, ends justify the means. They don't care.

KIBBE: Yeah. Well, we knew that, and all of us and all the activists that we talk to, we've asked them to read Saul Alinsky, we've asked them to read the literature of the left so that you understand who the enemy is and what you're really up against.

GLENN: Yeah, it's not you know, it's not like tactics. You're not just looking at people who are tactics. That's why I bring up every time that it is a book dedicated to Lucifer. It's not just tactics. This is evil. This is stuff that is, you've got to understand what you're up against, not just how to play the game but what you're up against.

KIBBE: Yeah. It's the worst possible enemy, but I've got to tell you having spent the last two days in Ohio with Dick Army, I'm seeing a level of energy and a level of commitment and a rediscovery of American values like I've never seen before, and I've been doing grassroots organization for twenty years. And this is the only way we beat these guys. This is the only way we beat the organized left is if people pay attention, if people stay engaged. And it is a peaceful revolution that has to be that as well. But the only

GLENN: What do you think of the guy hang on. What is the guy's name, Stu, that was just saying or Pat, that was just saying, you know, we should have revolution? That, you know, violence if we don't win?

STU: Stephen Broden.

GLENN: Where is he from?

STU: Dallas. I don't know

GLENN: Oh, Stephen Broden, Pastor Stephen Broden said that?

STU: That is the name here it says.

GLENN: He's been on the show. Pastor Stephen Broden said that? That's crazy. That's crazy.

STU: Says, violent uprising is not the first option but it is on the table. Then it said he followed that up with, we have a constitutional remedy and the framers said that

GLENN: I know this guy. Stephen Broden, what are you thinking? That is that's outrageous. Matt, any thought on somebody saying that violence is not off the table?

KIBBE: We have to be aggressively vigilant in throwing those people out. We have to have zero tolerance for that. It is a recipe for everything that the left wants.

GLENN: My gosh. My gosh. This guy gets he understands who you're up against, too. Stephen Broden, if I'm not mistaken, if I'm thinking the right guy, it is Pastor Stephen Broden, right?

STU: Does say he's a pastor.

GLENN: This is the guy who gets it. He understands who these people are. And maybe that's why he's saying it. But Stephen, you are you are 180 degrees in the wrong you play right into their hands. Absolutely wrong. Can't stand with you on that. I can't stand with you at all if you are saying stuff like that.

All right, Matt, I appreciate it. I'm glad to hear that your servers are back and hopefully they will be pounded with donations today so you can have the money to continue to get the word out and get people into the voting booths. Thank you, sir.

KIBBE: Well, my message, my message to everyone is, I know you're tired, I know you're frustrated but stay focused until November 2nd. Take 24 hours, rest up, and on November 3rd we start all over again with the lame duck and making sure that this new political class actually keeps the promises that they made in the election.

GLENN: Yeah, I tell you we have a dangerous time in between when the congresses are switching out, but we also have Republicans going to try to coopt all of these other, these other people. And it needs to be the other way around. Matt Kibbe from FreedomWorks, thanks a lot. Go to FreedomWorks.org. Yesterday they were hacked into. They had a big promotion, spent a lot of money trying to get people to donate. Yesterday somebody hacked in at 6:55, set it up so when I did the commercial, the servers would shut down. Go donate today, will you, at FreedomWorks.org. 


 

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
