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.


 

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Critical race theory: A special brand of evil

wal_172619/Pixabay

Part of what makes it hard for us to challenge the left is that their beliefs are complicated. We don't mean complicated in a positive way. They aren't complicated the way love is complicated. They're complicated because there's no good explanation for them, no basis in reality.

The left cannot pull their heads out of the clouds. They are stuck on romantic ideas, abstract ideas, universal ideas. They talk in theories. They see the world through ideologies. They cannot divorce themselves from their own academic fixations. And — contrary to what they believe and how they act — it's not because leftists are smarter than the rest of us. And studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country. Marx was no different. The Communist Manifesto talks about how the rise of cities "rescued a considerable part of the population from the idiocy of rural life."

Studies have repeatedly shown that leftists are the least happy people in the country.

Instead of admitting that they're pathological hypocrites, they tell us that we're dumb and tell us to educate ourselves. Okay, so we educate ourselves; we return with a coherent argument. Then they say, "Well, you can't actually understand what you just said unless you understand the work of this other obscure Marxist writer. So educate yourselves more."

It's basically the "No True Scotsman" fallacy, the idea that when you point out a flaw in someone's argument, they say, "Well, that's a bad example."

After a while, it becomes obvious that there is no final destination for their bread-crumb trail. Everything they say is based on something that somebody else said, which is based on something somebody else said.

Take critical race theory. We're sure you've noticed by now that it is not evidence-based — at all. It is not, as academics say, a quantitative method. It doesn't use objective facts and data to arrive at conclusions. Probably because most of those conclusions don't have any basis in reality.

Critical race theory is based on feelings. These feelings are based on theories that are also based on feelings.

We wanted to trace the history of critical race theory back to the point where its special brand of evil began. What allowed it to become the toxic, racist monster that it is today?

Later, we'll tell you about some of the snobs who created critical theory, which laid the groundwork for CRT. But if you follow the bread-crumb trail from their ideas, you wind up with Marxism.

For years, the staff has devoted a lot of time to researching Marxism. We have read a lot of Marx and Marxist writing. It's part of our promise to you to be as informed as possible, so that you know where to go for answers; so that you know what to say when your back is up against the wall. What happens when we take the bread-crumb trail back farther, past Marxism? What is it based on?

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism.

It's actually based on the work of one of the most important philosophers in human history, a 19th-century German philosopher named Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.

This is the point where Marxism became Marxism and not just extra-angry socialism. And, as you'll see in just a bit, if we look at Hegel's actual ideas, it's obvious that Marx completely misrepresented them in order to confirm his own fantasies.

So, in a way, that's where the bread-crumb trail ends: With Marx's misrepresentation of an incredibly important, incredibly useful philosophy, a philosophy that's actually pretty conservative.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
