50 most powerful political figures




The Blaze: Rush, Beck Top Newsweek’s 50 Most Powerful Political Figures

PAT: Number two in "Newsweek" powerful political figures list.

GLENN: That's ridiculous.

PAT: I think they mixed money into this equation because I don't know how the president of the United States lands at number 20. Does anybody really think Glenn Beck is more powerful than Barack Obama?

GLENN: I think there are several around the president and the oval office, SEIU, yes.

STU: I'm going to go no on that one, the guy has a decent amount of power. You can't do anything to anyone. He can.

GLENN: All I can do is educate. That's all I can do.

STU: They have to be willing participants. Barack Obama can do things we don't have to be willing participants to, that's the difference.

GLENN: Yes, I can't be an education dictator.

STU: No.

GLENN: I can't be a conservative dictator telling you what you believe.

PAT: And that's what people get confused by all the time, calling you a Nazi and you have no power. You have no power to do anything to anybody. Nazi-type power comes from-- I don't know, the ruling power.

STU: The government. The state. Yes.

PAT: It comes from big states which is why we're always preaching about, lets have a small state so nobody has that power.

GLENN: Who is on this list?

PAT: Rush, then you, then Hannity, Bill O'Reilly, Jon Stewart, Sarah Palin.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. That's the top six? One is a progressive or a liberal. One.

PAT: Jon Stewart, then IMUS, Bill Clinton, Keith Olbermann, Rudy Giuliani, Laura, Newt Gingrich, Madeleine Albright, really? Madeleine Albright, wow.

GLENN: There's got to be something spooky going on with Madeleine Albright because I don't see her power.

PAT: Stephen Colbert?

GLENN: Gosh, these the puppet master.

PAT: Maybe she's pulling Colbert's strings. Maybe that's what it is.

GLENN: Jon Stewart deserves it, seriously, Stephen Colbert, really, he was awful.

PAT: He was sad.

GLENN: It was sad.

PAT: I'm serious, too. It was sad.

GLENN: You watched somebody destroy their career.

PAT: I didn't like that guy and I felt bad.

GLENN: I felt worse for Jon Stewart because I think Jon Stewart knew it and I think he was kind of like, oh, this is killing Stephen here and I don't know if Stephen even gets it. Maybe Stephen was like, oh, the show must go on. At some point if I was Stephen Colbert, I would have said, you know, this isn't working, it is? Just to give some tip that, yeah, I jumped the shark here. I really-- this is going to ending poorly for me, isn't it? Yes, Stephen, it is.


 

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
