Politico lies about Glenn



Vote and Comment: Beck Demands Retraction: Politico‘s Story on Palin Is ’Out and Out Lie’

GLENN: Politico yesterday, Politico does this story on saying that sources close to me say I was so frustrated with Sarah Palin that she was cancelling and rebooking an appearance on this program for a book that I said no more Sarah Palin I won't have her on the show, radio or television because of that.

STU: Really?

PAT: What?

STU: News to me.

PAT: What?

GLENN: Yeah, you guys hadn't heard this story yesterday?

PAT: No, no. Oh, jeez.

GLENN: I'm walking down, I'm walking to work and Joe says, Glenn, can you reach out to Sarah Palin? And I said, sure, what's up? And he said, the Politico story. And I said, what Politico story? And he said, there were so many problems with booking her on your show that you said no more, she's not going to be on the show anymore.

STU: That was weird, when

PAT: That's almost the exact opposite of what actually occurred.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I don't even know what occurred because I had no recollection. I actually stopped and I looked at him and I said, what book? I mean, I didn't even I didn't even know the book.

PAT: I know.

GLENN: What book?

STU: Yeah, no, that's absurd I mean, because

PAT: Wow.

STU: It said that Sarah Palin because you hear these sort of nonsensical claims that she's high maintenance. I wouldn't even say she's low maintenance. She's zero maintenance.

GLENN: Zero maintenance.

PAT: Zero maintenance. And so are you.

PAT: I've never seen anything like it. And so are you.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? She would have walked

STU: No, let's not go crazy.

PAT: Well, I mean, when it comes to booking guests and stuff like that, I mean, what we told her was don't worry about it. Whatever.

GLENN: Whatever. I mean, I don't even remember

PAT: We don't have to be first, we don't have to be second, if you want to come on, come on. There's no pressure.

GLENN: Yeah, I have told for instance, Sarah Palin and I have said this directly to this is like two years ago: Sarah, I don't need, I don't need breaking news. That's not what I do. I don't need breaking news. You don't need to be the first guest. I don't really care. I don't really care. I don't guests on. So whatever. You want to be on, you don't want to be on? If I can help, if I can, you know, not help, whatever. I don't care.

STU: Yeah, it's like, you know, Sarah Palin like at 8/28, she shows up basically with no one, with no entourage.

GLENN: No one. I provided security for her and she didn't even ask for it.

STU: Yeah. She just hung out at a table by herself writing her speech and touching up her speech. She walked over. I remember at one point looking over and there's just Sarah Palin just there kind of watching the events by herself just being quiet and polite to everybody.

GLENN: Just normal.

STU: that passes by.

GLENN: She's a normal human being.

PAT: What a stupid, ridiculous story.

GLENN: So I said yesterday, went on television and I demanded a retraction or apology from Politico or name names, who on my staff said that. I know no one on my staff said that. No one. No one. Because my staff is a close knit, close knit staff. We like each other. We all like working with each other. Nobody would say that. Because if it were true, it would be so out of the ordinary. It would be so unlike us. Can you think of anybody we've done that to? That we've been frustrated? We said never again?

STU: No, not offhand.

GLENN: I mean except for like the Muppet, the Tickle Me Elmo guy. I mean, you really have to

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: We don't do that. So here's how it was reported in the press yesterday after I said that: Glenn Beck becomes Sarah Palin's knight in shining armor. What? No. I demanded an apology and a retraction or a naming of names from Politico.

STU: But they feel the need to assign some dramatic story line to the truth. The truth is she's extraordinarily low maintenance and has been nothing but a pleasure to work with.

GLENN: The truth is Politico lied. That's the truth.

STU: Well, I mean, it could be somebody claiming that they have inside knowledge. I mean, I

GLENN: Who? Who?

STU: I don't know.

PAT: Could be somebody from another show.

STU: Could be somebody from another show.

GLENN: They don't have any inside knowledge.

PAT: I know, I know.

GLENN: Our studios are separate.

STU: But that doesn't mean that Politico

GLENN: Our studios are separate from every other studio. We're in almost a separate building at Fox.

STU: Right, right.

GLENN: And all of my offices and all of my TV staff are with me in my offices.

PAT: Somebody from another show could have lied to Politico.

STU: Exactly. The lie somebody lied. It could have very easily been that someone lied to Politico.

GLENN: Here's the thing. You cannot believe, you cannot believe the amount of lies and distortion in the media. I wouldn't have believed it. Would you have believed it when we first

STU: Oh, no, it's much worse, much worse.

GLENN: I mean, if you think it's bad, times it by a hundred. I've never seen anything like it. When I first got into it, I thought, okay, there's some people with an agenda, but generally everybody tries to get it right. No, I don't even, I don't even believe that.

STU: No. I wouldn't say that.

GLENN: I don't believe that.

STU: Because the majority of time we've been on the air, Glenn, as far as, you know, news talk radio has been as somewhat of an observer to this.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You watch the stories happen, you kind of know the facts on the side, you don't

GLENN: We're still observers, I believe.

STU: And I think that's true. I don't mean to observe like we're inside of it. But a lot of the stories now are written about you.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: So we know exactly what happened behind the story. There's no, "I don't know, I don't know if I trust this person or not." We were there. We were sitting at these events watching them happen and we see them told in the media completely incorrect.

GLENN: And you know what else it is? We not only were we there, we know they never reached out to us. We know people don't reach out and try to get the story right. And when they do reach out, we have people that I mean, I can't tell you how many times we have said, no, you want the real story? Here's the real story. And then they just never publish it.

STU: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: It just doesn't matter. It doesn't matter to these people.

STU: Yeah. To be fair, it's not universal. There are people who do reach out all the time. You know what I mean? There are people that do try.

GLENN: There are some. There are some.

STU: And it's not universal, but it is worse than I expected.

GLENN: You know who, you know who said the shining knight thing was Mediaite? And Mediaite is one of those websites that gets it right about, I'd say 70% of the time. When they get it wrong, they get it wrong. But usually they reach out and they really try to get it right.

STU: That's great. That's all you can ask for.

GLENN: That's all I ask for is somebody who tries to be fair. And they try to be fair. But Mediaite, you got it wrong this time. I'm not being her knight in shining armor. I'm not covering I won't cover for anybody. I won't lie for anybody, I won't cover for anybody. I'm done giving my trust to anybody.

STU: Yeah. Sarah Palin, it's an easy story. She's not like that at all. So I don't wherever they got that information from was completely lying.


 

This MUST be why Trump (allegedly) had NUCLEAR documents at Mar-a-Lago

According to the Washington Post's "anonymous sources," the FBI was looking for documents related to nuclear weapons during its raid of Mar-a-Lago.

Who could have guessed what Donald Trump did with those documents (never mind that he allegedly had them for over a year before the FBI actually did anything)? And who knows why they were searching through Melania's drawers for such top-secret information? Also, isn't it interesting that even after both Attorney General Merrick Garland and Donald Trump asked for the search warrant to be unsealed, only this very unspecific and very damning bit of information was "leaked" to the Washington Post? And just a few months before the midterm elections?

Since the DOJ still hasn't told us much (what was leaked to the media), Glenn did his best to present a few "theories" of his own on "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday. Watch the video clip below to hear more from "The Glenn Beck Program." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

New details emerge about Trump raid — and 'it doesn't look good for the FBI'

New, alleged details about the raid of former President Donald Trump's home at Mar-a-Lago hint that it's "not looking good for the FBI," said BlazeTV host Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday.

Trump has faced attacks from every direction, but despite all of it, he has "not been found guilty or had any kind of real, solid evidence against him," Glenn pointed out.

Glenn detailed a long list of investigations, accusations, and lawsuits against Trump, and the latest puzzling revelations about the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago, which only seem to raise even more questions. For example, did agents truly refuse to give Trump's lawyer a copy of the warrant upon arriving at the home? Because sources have alleged that his attorney was kept "10 feet away from the warrant" and was not allowed to actually read it. If that's true, then it was absolutely against the law.

Then there was the inordinate amount of time spent going through Melania Trump's closet. And did they have the proper authority to break into Trump's safe?

"That warrant had better damn well say that they can break into that safe because the law is, you can't go into somebody's house and ... just tear it all apart," Glenn said. "You have to have a pretty good idea of where things might be located, and you ask for permission for those areas. And you have to know exactly what you're looking for, and if it's in a safe, you need to specifically say, 'it's in a safe and we're having a safe cracker come in.' If they didn't say in the warrant that they could crack his safe, it's the fruit of the poisoned tree. By the way, there was nothing in the safe."

Glenn also explained that the FBI broke into a specific "safe room" that contained national archives, which Trump was allegedly told by investigators to keep in a locked room.

"[Trump] made a safe room, and put two locks on it, at their request. And that's what they broke into," Glenn said. "This doesn't look good for the FBI," he added.

There’s an economic axis of evil taking shape right now, and the people in charge of our government are too stupid to acknowledge and deal with what’s happening. The U.S. dollar and the entire financial system are at stake, and, as Glenn Beck reveals on "Glenn TV" Wednesday, our enemies’ PUBLISHED plans to take the entire thing down.

While all of this is happening, our own leaders are making everything worse. We’ve got Nancy Pelosi risking an international incident, accelerating China’s plans to collapse us. And when Biden SHOULD be focusing on the security of our country, he’s instead preoccupied with controlling the weather with his Inflation "Reduction" Act.

Glenn exposes the TRUE numbers on what that bill will do to your family’s budget. Add to that, they’re more than doubling the IRS to make sure you feel the pain. And if you think they won’t come for you, look at what they just did to the former president of the United States. The DOJ and FBI just went after the political opponent of their boss, Joe Biden.

This is what they are focused on, and the threat to the dollar — and the entire financial system — isn’t even on their radar. Pain is coming for us, and they don’t care one bit.

Speaking before signing the “PACT Act of 2022” on Wednesday morning, President Joe Biden claimed that his wonderful economic plan "is working" and that somehow July’s annual inflation rate of 8.5% was actually “zero.”

“I just want to say a number: zero. Today we received news that our economy had 0% inflation in the month of July,” Biden said during a ceremony in the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre dutifully echoed the president's not-at-all misleading claim:

The truth of the matter is that last month's inflation rate of 8.5% was a (small) step in the right direction, but only because it was lower than June's 41-year high of 9.1% — and the thing is, anyone who's graduated kindergarten knows it.

So, who do White House personnel think they're fooling? On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere broke down how the Biden administration came to this latest disingenuous conclusion about the economy, what the latest consumer price index actually shows, and why the inevitable Biden brag-fest will be unbearable.
