Leftist radical Piven: Obama is doing things under the radar

Glenn Beck is seen here on GlennBeck.TV, a feature available exclusively to Glenn Beck Insider Extreme members. Learn more...

GLENN: I'm going to give you three pieces of audio here. We're going to get back to the communist, but first let me give you two pieces before it. The first one is Frances Fox Piven, Cloward and Piven thing, collapse the system, get everybody on, overwhelm the system with money and collapse it into a structure. Here's what she said about a week ago at the Brecht foundation.

PIVEN: Obama has done some good things as president. Most of us don't notice those things because he has done them under the radar.

GLENN: Okay. That is, of course, through the Tides Foundation, through George Soros, the Center For American Progress, George Soros, and all of these other things. That's why they're the Apollo Alliance, the Tides Foundation, wrote the stimulus package. What's in the stimulus package? Nobody knows. "I get a kick out of these people who say read the bill. What's the point in reading the bill?" It has been written by the Tides Foundation through the Apollo Alliance, partly financed by George Soros. "So why would we read the bill? George says it's okay."

Now, at the Brecht foundation and again this is from Marxists, communists, and progressives. This is the forum that we told you last year, we played the Bald Communist. Here is an immigrant to the United States and listen to what she says about the United States.

VOICE: When I first started being active and doing volunteer work, I started off, you know, being an immigrant resident of the United States and kind of like wanting to see what I could do to change things. But when I left to South Africa, that's when really I started to see the parallels of the systemic racism in South Africa as well as in the United States. And so I came, I was there for five weeks and it was a real, like very liberal kind of program. So it pushed me but, you know, not it just pushed me enough to get me real pissed off, pissed at white people, pissed at the U.S., pissed at what the U.S. flag meant and having to see it anywhere and anywhere.

Insider Extreme is the ONLY place Glenn, Stu and Pat will be on Election Night! Complete details...

GLENN: Having to see it.

PAT: Having to see it anywhere and everywhere. That's a real shame.

GLENN: Okay, now remember I'm a conspiracy theorist and I'm some sort of Joe McCarthy because I see communists everywhere. Here is the vice chair of the Communist Party USA and his endorsement of Obama and his chastisement of those on the left. Listen to what he says.

TYNER: For the purpose of pushing the country back and reversing the effects of 2008 election. But I think now we're getting out there and that's my message. We are facing a real challenge in front of us. We've got to spend the next period, I think, working around the jobs issue as we support those candidates who are going to fight for jobs for us when they get into the congress.

Now, I have a feeling that, uh, some friends on the left will say I don't support Democrats. That is such a diversion. You know, during the period of slavery, the African Americans were tended to be Republican because the Republican Party was the party of Lincoln. You know that, right? But in 1932 they all shifted to the Democratic Party because of the New Deal. And I think their attitude was, we'll support whatever party that supports us, that we can fight through.

GLENN: Stop it, stop it. Stop it there. We will support any party that supports us. Democrats, are you hearing that? We will support any party that supports us. Which party, which American party is now supporting the Communist Party? Do you really think that it was at this point do you really think that it was a coincidence that Chavez handed Barack Obama an anti American, anti colonialist book and he picked it up? Do you really think that that was a coincidence? Come on. Come on.

PAT: He wouldn't accept, what was it Rick Perry tried to give him when he saw him at the airport?

GLENN: Papers.

PAT: And he wouldn't take it. Wouldn't take it from Rick Perry. It's like, yeah, give it to her. Valerie Jarrett had to accept it from him. He wouldn't take a document from Rick Perry.

GLENN: And he actually posed with the book.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Do you remember, he not only took it, he posed with the book.

PAT: Then he was asked, are you why did you take the book? "I don't mind. I like to read."

GLENN: I like to read. Do you really like to read? Because you don't could I send you my newsletter? Maybe you should read that. You are telling people there's too much information out there.

All right. So back to the vice chair of the Communist Party USA saying here that he will work with any party that supports them.

TYNER: This is not a principle question. It's a tactical question. And in this period if we allow the Republicans to get gain control back into the congress of the United States, jobs bill's done. Done. Stimulus package is done. Employee Free Choice is done. Who knows when the troops are going to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Who knows when we're going to do something about the collapse of our schools and so forth. But if we are able to stop, then we have a fighting chance to change all those things.

You know, in Detroit here that 90,000 abandoned homes now in Detroit. They are talking about shrinking the size of the city because the population has gone away and they are talking about inviting people in to do agriculture in Detroit, turning it into a farm city? That's really interesting. Who destroyed, who did that to Detroit? It wasn't the working people.

PAT: Democrats.

GLENN: Progressives. Unions.

TYNER: Powerful industry, powerful corporations, the banks.

GLENN: Powerful corporations and banks.

PAT: Destroyed Detroit? Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Powerful corporations and banks. Not the progressive policies.

PAT: Not Democrats who have run that city for how long? Forever.

GLENN: They are not even Democrats. They are progressives.

PAT: Progressives, yeah.

GLENN: The Progressive Democrats that have run it and the unions.

PAT: And we have that, right, Stu? We have who's run Detroit for, what, 50 years?

STU: Yeah. I believe it goes back to mid Sixties, I think, in this book which is An Inconvenient Book. And I believe Detroit is 100% of the time. I don't think there's been any Republican there since the, would be with the information we collected which was I think mid Sixties.

GLENN: Look it up. And isn't what's his name from Michigan, his father and he had been going since, like, 1933?

STU: Oh, yeah, that's Dingell.

PAT: John Dingell.

STU: Yeah, John Dingell.

GLENN: Since 1933 this progressive and his father have been in the same seat. 1933.

PAT: That's 77, 78 years, something like that.

GLENN: What do you think? You want a definition of insanity? If you look at the states that are in the worst shape and the states that are in the best shape for people, the least progressive, the better the shape.

PAT: Well, look at Texas. Wouldn't you say Texas is probably our strongest state financially right now? And in every other way?

GLENN: Wouldn't you look at states and say, what are they doing right and what are these states doing wrong?

PAT: You would think so.

GLENN: You would think so. Look at the cities. What is Philadelphia doing? Do you have the do you have the mayor, mayoral stuff or the run by cities?

STU: I do, yes.

GLENN: Let's look at these cities.

STU: Detroit is Number 2 with the worst poverty rate as far as this chart goes. And time that a Republican was mayor since 1965, 0%.

GLENN: What about Philadelphia?

STU: Philadelphia, 0%. New Orleans 0%, Newark 0%. Milwaukee, 0%. St. Louis, 0%. Buffalo, 0%. Atlanta, 0%.

PAT: No Republicans.

STU: And there's three cities that have had some. Highest is Cleveland at 38%. No one else 31 for Miami and 19 for Cincinnati. The entire grand total, Republicans have run the cities with the worst poverty problems in America only 8% of the time since 1965.

GLENN: Do you see that? What does that tell you? What does that tell you?

PAT: And again conversely when you look at Florida, when you look at Texas, when you look at the states that conservatives are running and you see how well they're doing. We just went through we went down the list of the top 25 cities that are coming out of the recession or never went into it. Eleven of the top 25 were from Texas. Texas is doing well. Now, they have a lot of resources, yes, about you they have no state income tax. Florida, zero state income tax.

GLENN: Florida's in trouble, though. Florida is.

STU: Florida had big trouble with the they had a big real estate bubble.

GLENN: Florida's going through exactly what they went through

PAT: Texas never had that.

GLENN: in the 1920s. They had a huge real estate bubble. People were like, whoa. We can what? We can live down here? And had a huge real estate bubble and it popped and, you know, that's just the way it's that's just the way it's going to be.

PAT: That's just a factor of humidity. People are realizing, why did we come to Florida? It's humid down here.

GLENN: No, it is, it is, but as long as California is sucks beyond belief, Florida won't have to worry about it. I'll take alligators, I'll take the humidity, I'll even take the liberals. I'll live I'll live surrounded by alligators and liberals, and sometimes they're hard to figure out which is which, alligators and liberals, I'll be surrounded by that and in 100% humidity over California's insanity. But maybe that's just me.

The House approved a new aid package for Ukraine of nearly $40 billion, which will increase the total U.S. funding for Ukraine's war efforts to a whopping $58 BILLION since March, if the package passes in the Senate. Meanwhile, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testified before Congress that the Biden administration is considering diverting resources away from an already-struggling VA (Department of Veterans Affairs) to deal with the border crisis.

"I am not making this up -- this will [make] your head explode," Glenn Beck said in the radio program Thursday. "They are going to divert costs; the Biden administration is taking money from the VA. Now already, our veterans get seconds, and we are [considering] diverting VA funding, and doctors, and nurses, away from our vets and to the migrants at the border, so we can take money that we don't have, $58 billion, and send it to Ukraine. What the hell is wrong with us?"

"Now, some Republican lawmakers are attempting to fight this," he added. "But, most people haven't even heard of this. This is how the atrocities at the border go unchecked. Biden sweeps it all under a rug. The mainstream media covers it up. And, meanwhile, people suffer and die. And in this case, it's not only the people on the border, but it is also our veterans in VA hospitals."

Glenn went on to detail the unreported deadly consequences of Biden’s border policies which have led to enough fentanyl to kill millions of Americans pouring across the border and terrorists having found easy paths into our country.

Corruption, greed, and death. This is what the Left’s border policy is REALLY about, not the humanitarian effort they claim it is.

On tonight's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck exposes the groups benefitting from the border chaos under the Biden administration. A leftist money supply flows to NGOs on the border that are now taking the roles that the government should be filling with immigration and helping immigrants to flood into the U.S. Glenn asks: Why is the U.N. funding the flow of migrants to our border and subverting Congress? Why are former Biden staffers working for “non-profits” that are now getting exclusive, HIGHLY irregular multimillion-dollar border contracts? Worse than that, the consequences of Biden’s border policy have now turned deadly. National Guard members at the border are dying, fentanyl from China pours across the border, and terrorists have found an easy path to enter our country.

Finally, Glenn asks Texas Rep. Chip Roy if it’s time to impeach DHS Secretary Mayorkas for his negligence that is costing American lives.

I can no longer relate to the modern pro-choice woman. I don’t want to shout my abortion. I want to pretend it never happened. Up until the SCOTUS leak, I had done a pretty good job of burying my 20-year secret. But the Roe v. Wade information earthquake triggered an eruption. I can no longer pretend to be ambivalent or leave it to blue-check pro-lifers to speak for me. My days of repeating the “safe, legal, and rare” mantra like a good, GenX libertarian feminist are over.

Some pro-abortion activists call their life-ending procedure “self-care,” like they just booked a hot stone massage or a facial at a spa. This is a polite euphemism many women tell themselves – not because we are cold-blooded killers, but because it’s how we survive. We HAVE to lie in order to justify what is actually taking place. Denial is a protective coating, a barrier from the truth. Remember, any woman born after Roe v. Wade has been programmed to believe that abortion is a natural-born right. “It’s legal; therefore it must not be evil. This is a medical procedure. Women do it every day.” Planned Parenthood has a nice way of describing abortion on its website: “A doctor uses a combination of medical tools and a suction device to gently take the pregnancy tissue out of your uterus.” “Gently take the tissue out.” Benign euphemisms that wrap our hearts and minds in a suffocating cocoon. Benign euphemisms to keep us in line.

I was raised in the Bible Belt and to believe that sex before marriage was the gravest of sins. You’d be better off robbing a store by pistol than to be caught fornicating with a boy. And yet I did fornicate with a boy. No boy I’d ever be proud to bring around to my parents. I never gave him the option to talk me out of it. I just demanded he pay half for the procedure and never speak of it again. I told myself it would be easier to survive the hidden shame of the abortion than wear the shame of my sin on my belly for the next nine months.

...the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job.

I took the so-called “easy” way out at six weeks along and swallowed a pill I got from some abortionist who gave me the creeps. He was no medical saint like the one portrayed in “The Cider House Rules,” nobly saving women from coat-hanger abortions. The doctor in my story made a quick buck at the expense of terrified “good girls.” Years later I would learn he kept aborted fetuses in buckets and was under investigation for shady medical practices. I couldn’t leave his clinic fast enough, but at least I wouldn’t have to miss work or skip my college classes. I could finish my degree and still make my parents proud. How convenient. But the pill I took made an ugly, painful mess, and it didn’t finish the job. Now I had to see a real obstetrician, get an ultrasound, and deal with the aftermath.

This doctor’s office was nicer. It had bright lights and pink walls. Although my doctor was professional, I still felt the quiet judgment in her voice. I refused to look at the image of my tortured fetus on the screen. I knew what it would mean if I did – my feminist career ambitions would lose the battle to my soul if I looked at that baby. The doctor told me the fetus was still viable but likely mentally damaged. The “kinder” thing to do would be to finish the job at an in-clinic abortion. End the fetus’ suffering and end my own self-torture. I woke up from anesthesia to learn the abortion was complete. It’s over so quickly, but the internal conflict hangs. And hangs.

You find weird ways to cope. Not long after, I discovered an abandoned robin’s egg, still perfectly intact. I wrapped it in a sock and carried it with me for over a decade. If I couldn’t do right by my own child, maybe I could keep this unhatched egg safe. Eventually, I had to come to terms with the fact that the bird egg was dead, and I got therapy. He was a good New York psychologist. Secular, liberal, tolerant. He helped me to forgive myself, but I always knew who I really needed to ask for forgiveness …

It’s easy for a young woman with all those stockpiled eggs in her ovaries to be pro-choice. She can toss away the miracle of life like a rotten banana or a bruised apple because it is easily replaced. It wasn’t until I was forced to confront the mortality of my own fertility that I felt the full force of my regret.

But I do not write this letter to achieve redemption or to be the new face of the pro-life movement. You will not see me pleading with women outside an abortion clinic. You will not see me protesting with a cutesy, homemade sign at the March for Life. You will not see me sparring on Twitter, confronting baby-killers with cold, hard facts. For now, you will not even know my name. I suppose this is not very brave, but my story is not complete and God’s work in me is in an active state. Mine is a modest mission: Maybe if I’m honest about my own wounds, I can help other women like me to heal. Maybe I can love the terrified, knocked-up woman in the Bible Belt who believes the best worst lies our society has ever told, better than any conservative talk show host ever could.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound.

The SCOTUS leak ripped a band-aid off a festering 50-year-old wound. It’s naive to think we will fix this mess for the unborn overnight and deprogram men and women plugged into 50 years of slick, well-packaged lies. Slavery was legal in the U.S. for over 200 years before we fought a war to end it. And it was another 100 years before we ended state-sanctioned racism.

When it comes to the issue of defending innocent life, I know it’s hard to be patient. This is a clear battle of good vs. evil for many on the right, but you need allies like me – the former “safe, legal, and rare” pro-choicers who are afraid to come out of the shadows. Afraid to become a political prop in the culture wars, but willing to do the quiet missionary work in our back yards.

I hope for the day future progressives look back in horror at today’s progressives fighting to keep abortion on demand. I hope for the day the New York Times publishes the pro-life version of the 1619 Project. Maybe they’ll call it the “1973 Project,” “whose mission is to reframe the country's history by placing the consequences of abortion and the contribution of the pro-life movement at the very center of our national narrative.”

Until that day, I want to help these women to be braver than me. To see beyond their impossible tomorrow. If I had allowed someone the chance to help me be brave, I might not have had the same successful career, but I would have a 20-year-old son or daughter in whom to invest this unexplained overflow in my heart.

Dear EV drivers: Think you're safe from soaring gas prices? Think again.

Diesel fuel prices have surged to record levels, adding to already record-high inflation in the U.S. But most Americans don't drive cars that run on diesel, and many have turned to electric vehicles (EVs) to avoid the ever-increasing pain at the pump. So, how would diesel supply shortages — and the resulting sky-high prices — affect you or your budget?

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck explained why every American should be concerned about the rising cost of diesel.

"Diesel fuel is the fuel that powers the economy," Glenn began. "How does that work? Well, let's start over in China. You want something from China, you have to put it onto a big boat, a slow boat from China, and that's powered by diesel.

"Then, it gets to our docks," he continued. "You know all of those big cranes and everything else that take that crap off of the ship and then put it on the ground? Run by diesel. And then the forklifts that come and pick it up and then bring it over to the train, those run on diesel. And then the train, those engines, they run on diesel. And then the trucks that get it halfway across the country from the train where they're picked up again by the forklifts, run by diesel. Then they're put into another truck, also run by diesel."

"I sure hope all the people bragging about their electric cars as gas prices skyrocket have a backup plan for their food too. Because as diesel prices go crazy, so does the price of EVERYTHING," Glenn posted on Twitter.
