NPR CEO: Williams should keep his views with his psychiatrist



The Blaze: NPR CEO: Juan‘s Feelings Best Kept ’Between Him & His Psychiatrist…’

GLENN: We have Juan Williams, an update on Juan Williams. You know, I was thinking about this yesterday, and what's her name? Mara Liasson from NPR?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: The scuttlebutt yesterday now is that she is possibly going to be fired from NPR. They are not happy about her being on Fox. They haven't been happy about her being on Fox for quite some time. In fact, the NPR CEO said some amazing things yesterday about Juan Williams.

VOICE: He has been a frequent contributor to Fox News. That's fine. We don't necessarily have an issue with that.

GLENN: Necessarily.

VOICE: However, we expect anybody that appears on our air either as a journalist or a news analyst to conduct themselves according to the our journalistic rules of ethics wherever they may be.

There have been several incidences over the years where Juan has strayed from that line and we have had discussions with him. We have asked him not to do it again. This is not the first time quite honestly, but we made a decision that really quite honestly at this point after several cases of him veering from those journalistic ethics that in this case we decided that we should that he could no longer; that is, that his integrity as a news analyst has been undermined by the fact that he has expressed these very divisive views. This is not a reflection

GLENN: Unbelievable.

VOICE: of his comments. This is not a debate. You know, Juan feels the way he feels. That is not for me to judge to pass judgment on. That is really, his feelings that he expressed on Fox News are really between him and his, you know, psychiatrist or his publicist or take your pick. But it is not compatible

GLENN: She is not going to pass judgment.

VOICE: with the role of an analyst on NPR's air.

PAT: That is amazing.

GLENN: That is one of the most amazing things I've ever heard. I mean, listen. He expressed an opinion on political correctness. That's what this is, an opinion on political correctness. That if you don't if you live in a society where you can't say uncomfortable things because it's politically incorrect, then they all all the doors just shut down and you move nowhere. You can't have conversations with people. And look at what happens. This again, journalistic standards? He was asked for his opinion on political correctness. He gives it and they fire him.

PAT: And really again it wasn't even an opinion. It was a feeling. It was something he experiences when he it's not even his opinion.

STU: Right. He was telling the truth about a factual thing about his life. They asked him a question about his life. He factually answered it.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: It is really amazing. The first thing she goes here to, what I love here, the very first thing out of her mouth is he's a frequent contributor to Fox News. What does that have to do with it? Have do you even bring that into it if it's not part of his firing?

GLENN: Well, here's all you need to know about this, and I have not seen anybody really connect the dots on this. What this is really truly all about has nothing to do Juan Williams said this morning, give me the other things. Show me.

PAT: Yeah, what else have I done?

GLENN: What else was it? Show them to me.

STU: They did yell at him once before, didn't they, for appearing on Fox?

GLENN: Appearing on Fox? I'm sorry.

STU: Wasn't there an actual, like, thing they were complaining about last time? Because they were complaining about him being on Fox previous to this incident. Not with any rational, I mean, thing. But there was

GLENN: I'm sorry. Is being on Fox a contract violation? Because

STU: Well, it's not a news organization. We learned that from the president. It's not a news organization. So he's just, I guess hanging out on a cooking show or something.

GLENN: We should I'm telling you, look at what is happening. And they are demanding. This is what's happening: When you have an organization like the Tides Foundation, which is the root of all of it, this is the this is probably the most powerful group of people and the most powerful organization in America today. This is the one that is writing, through its little programs, its little projects like the Apollo Project or Apollo Alliance, they are writing the stimulus bill. These are the people that are calling the shots. The idea behind the Tides Project was that they are or the Tides Foundation was that they would help people make grants. Really what it is, in my view, is a money laundering system. You would recognize it more as a money laundering system. You can give millions of dollars and you can say, yeah, I just want this to go to the communists. I'm sorry. I didn't I didn't hear you. "I said I want to..." No, you didn't hear me. I said I didn't hear you, wink wink. And they give to all kinds of projects, and your money is now no longer connected to you when they fund communists or they fund whatever. That's the way it works. And the Tides Foundation is the reason. You know why they did One Nation? Because remember the Tides Foundation is the one that supported and put on financially One Nation. That is in essence what the Tides Foundation does. They take all of these groups and they put them all under one umbrella. They get everybody working together. That's what they do. And when they were first started, they didn't say what is politically feasible. They said what must be done for our little socialist utopia?

Now, how do we get there? How do we create the conditions on the ground to get there? Well, one of the, one of the groups and I don't know if they are affiliated with the Tides Foundation but they certainly influenced the people in and around this administration and the Tides Foundation, is Free Press. What does Free Press want? Free Press needs a crisis in journalism. So then you can have the government step in and just take it all over. Well, you already have that financial crisis going on because nobody's reading these stupid papers anymore. Nobody's reading. Who's reading? How much did Newsweek sell for? $1? Nobody's reading it. Why? Why can I sell millions of books every year, have a three hour radio show, a one hour television show, a wildly, in four weeks a wildly popular news site called The Blaze? When you see the stats on The Blaze in the first month, what was it? 45 million page views or something? I mean, it's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. We haven't even really launched this thing yet. We were putting this up so we could, you know, kind of almost have beta tests. You know, we just wanted people to kind of trickle into it because we're not really ready yet. When you see what we have coming after the first of the year, look out. Look out, media. When we put this thing up, it in three weeks blew by almost all of the big websites. It's incredible what has been going on. Why? Because people don't trust the media anymore.

 

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
