Glenn Beck: Union fires worker over military T-shirt

The Blaze:

Union Fires Stagehand for Wearing ‘U.S.S. George H.W. Bush’ Shirt & Hat

GLENN: Let me ask you this. When we have the president giving a speech some

place and, you know, for instance in California and some union worker, a union

worker is building the stage and putting things together, hours before the

president arrives, and he has a son who is serving in the military and so he

wears a George H. W. Bush, not George Bush 43 but George Bush 41 and he's

wearing, you know, the blue cap with the, you know, yellow writing that military

wears that says USS George H. W. Bush and then CVN and has the number on it,

he's wearing the carrier cap and he's wearing a carrier jacket because his son

is serving on that ship, since when in America do you lose your job for showing

up working to work in that outfit, hours before, where you can't even build the

stage for the president of the United States wearing a jacket and a hat that

reflects an aircraft carrier that your son is stationed on? I've never heard

that before. Could we play the audio, please, of this dismissed worker?

REPORTER: He is a stagehand, a union stagehand who is working to put up the

Obama rally stage here on campus this morning. He was wearing a hat that said

George H. W. Bush and a sweatshirt that said the same thing. Now, the George H.

W. Bush is the name of an aircraft carrier that Dwayne's son is serving on. His

son has been in the Navy for the last three years. Dwayne says his union fired

him from his job here this morning setting up the stage because he was wearing

clothing with the name Bush on it.

GLENN: When, since when is our president so thin skinned that he can't even have

somebody hours before he arrives working there with a sweatshirt and a hat that

says the name of a carrier? America, where are we headed? Anybody who says that

they are not interested in they are not interested in, you know, voting, they

don't know who to vote for, they don't know what to vote for, get the hell off

your ass. Find out. You are, you are entering a time in America unlike any other

time we've ever seen. No, I can't say that. We haven't seen it since Woodrow

Wilson. We haven't seen it since FDR. Remember what I told you about the Supreme

Court. I said, mark my words this is a year ago: Mark my words. They are going

to go after the Supreme Court. They are going to attack the Supreme Court. When

Obama attacked them during the state of the union address, that was a sign that

that is the next place to attack. And what are they doing? Now the left is suing

the Supreme Court Justice John Roberts. They are suing him. Not the other five.

Just him. They are sending signals. America, you have to understand the

progressive left sends signals. Why do you think they fired Juan Williams? To

send a signal. Do not treat Fox News as anything other than an enemy. They are

an enemy, and if you want to be a friend of ours, you will treat them as an

enemy. You do you cannot have loyalties to both them and us. They are sending a

signal not to America but to journalists. "You better choose carefully" is what

they're saying. Because only one side will stand. And if you stand with them,

you will be done with us. This is a hostile, hostile regime. And America needs

to wake up and know what you're facing and know the way out.


President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
