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.

 

Our Fourth Amendment, which protects our right to privacy, has never been in more danger. Journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain how the digital world has given leaders — both in government and corporations — the ability to not only spy on Americans, but to track their patterns of behavior, too.

Lara explained why, even if you think you have nothing to hide, you should be very concerned. Because these digital "human terrain maps" could be used to manipulate you in any way those in control see fit.

"The purpose of your privacy is much more than just being out of public view," Lara said. "There is really nothing that's more central to our democracy than the right to privacy. I mean, all of the rights in the Constitution have a real purpose, and a real value, and if we allow people to take them away from us, we voluntarily are surrendering that. We are lambs to the slaughter.

"They're not just looking at what you have to hide. They're looking to manipulate you into doing what they want. These are control systems. That's what they are," Lara explained. "What they do with the information is they create a 'human terrain map' for every single person on the planet, anyone within a digital signature or within their reach. They are creating a human terrain map that can be used against you, by anyone."

Who were the people and groups involved with coronavirus research, and what really went down before and after the pandemic began? On "Glenn TV" this week, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to outline a tale of negligence and then, coverup. The elites of the world - the people calling themselves experts - trusted the Chinese Communist Party with one of the most dangerous weapons we can imagine on this planet--a virus.

Glenn reveals who was involved in a definitive timeline, and argues: If proof of a lab leak does come out, the worlds needs to know EVERYONE that was involved. We must expose the coverup and attempt to control the narrative of the pandemic origins. Everyone from Big Tech, the media, the Chinese and even our own government have been involved. What lies behind the coverup could reveal the dirty secret that, in order to cut corners, the academic elites and government entrusted Communist China with a civilization-killing virus.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin said his new book, "American Marxism," provides proof that we're not just facing a coming Marxist revolution — it's already here.

Many Americans remain unconvinced, believing recent moves from the far left and the Democratic Party are just passing phases. But this is not a "fad," Levin told Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday.

"This isn't progressivism, or social activism, or democratic socialism. This is Marxism. Now, it may not be Marxism in every particular. But it's an Americanized form of Marxism," Levin explained.

"You need to pay attention to what's taking place ... You've seen it with your own two eyes. You saw the riots all summer long. You saw Black Lives Matter, which is headed by an openly proud Marxist. You see Antifa, which is a Marxist anarchist organization. You see the media, that you have been watching and reading, endorse every single one of these movements," he added.

"People have been brainwashed, or ... haven't been paying attention. They view this as a passing fad," Levin went on to say. "It's not. We all need to wake up to this. And if we have little differences, moderate Democrats, Libertarians and so forth, you better put them aside right now. Because we have a common enemy. I say enemy, not opponent. Not adversary. Enemy. And we need to be focused on defeating that enemy, rather than fighting among ourselves."

Electric vehicles are the wave of the future. They are so much better for the environment. At least that's what we have been told, but is this correct?

On his TV special, Glenn Beck explained how electric vehicles (EVs) might not actually be the environmental solution we've been led to believe. In fact, they may not be a solution at all.

Glenn shared a recent article from LiveScience that reported:

A 2014 study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences looked at the entire life cycle of an EV's emissions, from mining the metals required for the batteries to producing the electricity needed to power them, and then compared this with the average emissions of a gas-powered vehicle. The team found that when electric vehicles are charged with coal-powered electricity, they're actually worse for the environment than conventional gasoline cars.

He next shared an article from The Greenage, which stated:

The Union of Concerned Scientists has calculated that manufacturing a mid-sized EV with an 84-mile range results in about 15 percent more emissions than manufacturing an equivalent gasoline vehicle. For larger, longer-range EVs that travel more than 250 miles per charge, the manufacturing emissions can be as much as 68 percent higher.

Noting how electric vehicles and other fossil-fuel alternatives require the use of mined minerals like lithium, cobalt, zinc, copper, and nickel, among others, Glenn quoted an International Energy Agency report that warned reaching the goals of the Paris Agreement "would mean a quadrupling of mineral requirements for clean energy technologies by 2040. An even faster transition, to hit net-zero globally by 2050, would require six times more mineral inputs in 2040 than today."

"Can [you] predict which country is the world leader in processing the minerals needed for these batteries? Right, China," Glenn stated. "The average EV requires over 200 kilograms of minerals. The average gas vehicle requires 40 kilograms of minerals, mostly copper. A single EV has 22 pounds of lithium in it ... yet another way that the green reset of American energy is putting us all at the mercy of Communist China."

"Oh, and remember during the Obama administration when the world was gonna end' over fracking?" Glenn asked. "Well, the Institute for Energy Research now says, and I quote, 'Mining and processing of lithium, however, turns out to be far more environmentally harmful than what turned out to be the unfounded issues with fracking.'"
