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.

 

DITCH MITCH? Why McConnell has 'GOT TO GO'

Glenn Beck on Monday tore into Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) for allocating $7 million from the Senate Leadership Fund to Alaska — a race that would "go to a Republican either way" — instead of the Arizona Senate race, saying "if there's one person who's responsible for the Democrats keeping control of the Senate, it's McConnell."

As McConnell pushes to hold an election for Republican leadership as soon as possible, several Republican senators are calling for the postponement of internal leadership elections, which are currently slated to occur this week even though several races still don't have winners.

"Mitch McConnell has got to go," Glenn stated. "Why did [he] put so much money in the Murkowski [R-Alaska] race when we knew it was going to be a Republican either way? ... We all know why he did that. He did that because he wanted to make sure he had Murkowski, who would kowtow to him. [...] We also know why he didn't put money into [Arizona Republican candidate] Blake Masters, who could've won that race. He didn't put any money there because he knew Blake Masters would not kowtow."

Glenn went on to suggest it's time for each of us to call our state's Republican senators and make it clear that if they plan to vote for Mitch, they can plan on not having your vote when the next election rolls around.

"Let's see who's on the side of Mitch McConnell, who's a member of the Mitch's B***hes Club ... who is it that will actually stand with this guy, because ... he was instrumental in getting nothing done. Nothing," he said. "Mitch McConnell and his ilk are going to be exactly the same as they have always been."

Immediately following the mostly disappointing 2022 midterm elections, many conservatives have rushed to back either rising GOP star Gov. Ron DeSantis or former President Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024.

But Glenn Beck cautioned conservatives not to engage in the post-midterm debate between Trump and DeSantis, saying instead that we are blessed to have both men fighting on the side of freedom.

"I am not going to engage in this and I urge you not to engage in this. We have an opportunity right now to have both of these guys on our side. I want both of them in the fight," Glenn said on the radio program.

"Let's count our blessings of having two great fighters. Can you name one on the Democratic side?" he asked.

"Let's celebrate that we have two of them and let the system work it out. We cannot separate ourselves from one another. If Donald Trump wins the nomination, I am all in. If Ron DeSantis wins the nomination, I am all in. It is really important that we don't divide ourselves. That's what the Democrats do. That's what they need us to do," Glenn continued. "Don't give them what they want."

Whitney Webb EXPOSES the REAL power behind Jeffrey Epstein's sexual blackmail network

Journalist Whitney Webb has a gift for locating power and hunting it in its darkest corners. In her new two-volume book, “One Nation Under Blackmail: The Sordid Union Between Intelligence and Crime that Gave Rise to Jeffrey Epstein,” she exposes the dark truth about Epstein’s extensive criminal operations and the connections to entire networks of power and influence — a web of elites that infiltrates the highest ranks of every sector, including law enforcement, art, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, big business, real estate, philanthropy, media, academia, banking and more.

Webb joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to expose just how deep Epstein's vast network of corruption and power really went. Was Epstein a government informant? How big is the scandal's body count? And of course, did Epstein actually kill himself?

Webb's research into transhumanism has also given her a terrifying perspective on the World Economic Forum and tech elites, including Elon Musk. People around the world have had enough of these global elites trying to control their lives, and they're starting to elect leaders who are pushing back. But can these new leaders survive the system that people like Klaus Schwab have put in place?

Webb told Glenn that she believes we're actually facing something much bigger than Klaus Schwab.

Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to explain why, with over 100,000 votes left to count, she's "100% confident" that she will win against Democratic candidate Katie Hobbs, who currently still holds a narrow lead.

Kari also gave her thoughts on why the ballot counting has been so slow, why that's "embarrassing" for Arizona, and whether Republican senatorial candidate Blake Masters will also win his election.
