GLENN: Thank you so much for listening. Thank you for watching. Tonight is

Part 3 of the Soros story. It is tonight, the first half will be tying it all

together and then the second half is an action plan. Make your choice, make your

choice, because they have. We have some more video that you haven't seen that is

pretty remarkable and the choice is becoming clear. What I told you would happen

has now again happened. I told you that there would come a time when they will

just start to say, We're socialists, yes, we're socialists, we're Marxists,

that's what we are. The communists are now coming out and saying, Yes, we're

communists and we're just like you. What's the problem with that? And Lawrence

O'Donnell has come out on MSNBC and said that he's a socialist. At least

Lawrence O'Donnell, I have respect for Lawrence O'Donnell, the only person I can

think I can say this on MSNBC. I actually have respect, I think Lawrence

O'Donnell may be the only person that I would go up to and shake his hand, you

know, cross a room and shake the man's hand and say, Thank you for being

intellectually honest, at least. I disagree with what he believes, but at least

he's being intellectually honest. Everybody else is playing a game. He's the

only one that is coming out and being intellectually honest. I, again, disagree

with him but not on everything that he says. He says that Republicans and

Democrats both have voted for socialist programs. Yes, they have. He is the only

one that I've heard come out and say that Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security is

socialism. Yes, it is. It is. I've never heard that case. I've never heard that

case in textbooks. Are your kids taught that, that we're a socialist nation? I

haven't heard that. I'd like to teach them that. Instead, what's being taught is

this is all capitalism, this is all the free market. No, it's not. Lawrence

O'Donnell again is right. We haven't been a capitalist country, a free market

for about 100 years. He says it was FDR. It was before that. It was Woodrow

Wilson, period. It really started with what's his name? Theodore Roosevelt and,

you know, the national parks and everything else. So, he's right.

Now, here's the rest of the stuff and, Pat, you want to set this up a little

bit?

PAT: Yeah. He was explaining his comment that I am a socialist on MSNBC and,

like you said, he's just admitting it and now not only is he admitting it, he's

trying to sell it to the American people.

GLENN: It's good.

PAT: We're good. All right. Let's have that debate.

O'DONNELL: Every country has a mix of both. The argument in this country is not

socialism or no socialism. Glenn Beck and no one else on the FOX News payroll

advocate the abolition of any of the socialist programs that the government

enacted in the 20th century.

GLENN: Excuse me. Stop. I do. Read my book, Broke. Judge Napolitano does.

Clearly Judge Napolitano does. I believe what's his name? Bowling.

PAT: Eric Bowling.

GLENN: Talks about it. There are libertarians at FOX, not all of them, but there

are. I would imagine that there are socialists over there, as well. I don't

know. I don't it's a new thing to me to see the people who are, like, yeah, I'm

a socialist, I'm a communist and I'm proud of it. I didn't even know that I

thought that had been discredited so listening ago. So, there are a lot of

people, but there you are wrong, Larry. I do advocate for the abolition.

However, I believe in verse progress, if you will. If progress is the

progressive movement, I believe that you need to take it apart step by step. You

can't you can't string everybody out on heroin and then just stop it. You need

methadone and then you just start bringing it down bit by bit. We're heroin

addicts.

STU: Yeah. It would be hard to tell everyone that they have to be, you know,

more dependent on charity and stuff because we've been so told that that's not

how you do things.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: A bonus.

GLENN: For instance, who in their right mind would stop Social Security right

now for our parents and our grandparents? That's insane.

STU: Yeah. I don't know.

GLENN: The whole system was built up for that. So, what would I advocate? I

would advocate the abolishing of the SSI program but abolishing it and I don't

know a number. I'm pulling it out of my pants here, but, you know, you abolish

is for anybody 50 years old or younger. Look. I'm 46. I know there's not a

chance of me getting Social Security. I'm not planning on that and if you are

planning on it, you're a moron. So, if you're 50, 55, I mean, maybe. I don't

know. I would like to see, who is still planning on getting that? So, you raise

the retirement age but not for those who are already retired. We take care of

the people we promised. Everybody else, you're a moron if you think you're going

to get it. You're not going to get it and we're just very clear. So, we take

care of those who need to be taken care of and we abolish it, but we do it in a

way where people have the ability to transition. People who are 60 years old

don't necessarily have the ability to transition. They do have the ability to

work longer and I know that doesn't sound like fun, but when have we stopped we

stopped valuing our elders? When can we put value on what they have learned? Do

you know whether we started corrupting our system? This is such a fascinating

point. When we started really corrupting our financial system, when the big

financial houses started doing all these CEO's and everything else, it's when

the last generation that had lived through the Great Depression retired. It was

within two, three years of the older people that had seen real want and real

need and a collapse of a system before, when they retired, within a couple of

years we started playing all these games because nobody was there going, No, no,

you can't do that, no. Rainy days do come. We have to stop devaluing the worth

of our elders. There's no reason somebody at 65 needs to retire. If you want to

retire, that's great, but, first of all, that's not promised by anybody. When

did that promise become a promise? Never in the history of man! Do we take care

of people? Yes. If they can't work, yes. If they're too old and just can't do

it, yes. But that's compassion, not a government handout or program.

STU: I mean, look at that. We're talking about a country that now has built a

system where you're required to work from 18 to 64, essentially, which is less

than 50 years. When you're living to 80 years old. We're requiring work out of

basically half of our life times. And we're expected to be able to retire and

live for 30 years off of a society that, you know, is in you know, working age

for only 45?

GLENN: All right. Here he goes a little bit more. Social Security Social

Security all right. Maybe Glenn Beck is opposed to agriculture subsidies or

something like that.

GLENN: And I am.

VOICE: I don't know about him, but I find him very hard to follow.

PAT: Yeah, I do, too.

GLENN: Most people do.

VOICE: FOX News is all of the sudden up in arms about President Obama's tepid

contribution to our already socialistic healthcare system.

GLENN: Stop. Tepid solution? Would anyone say this is a tepid solution? He just

took over a third of our economy.

PAT: A socialist would say it.

GLENN: Exactly. Yes.

STU: It's tepid to a socialist.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Yes. You want to go the other direction. Everything that has been applied

before has been tepid. This is a, this is a strategy to destroy the free market

in healthcare. It's going to destroy doctors. It's going to destroy hospitals.

It's going to destroy drug companies.

PAT: It's already doing that.

GLENN: It already is. It already is. It's destroying all of it. Why? To get it

into a it is a medium step. It is it's what the President and the Tides

Foundation said. It's not on a trojan horse. It's right there. It just leads to

what he wants.

VOICE: Hating Obama than hating socialism. Glenn Beck and Bill O'Reilly seem to

think that I cracked on the air last week and finally admitted my darkest

secret, my acceptance of the practical socialism that has allowed the United

States to continue to be a humane and great country. They haven't been

listening.

GLENN: Oh, here we go.

VOICE: Two weeks ago on Bill Maher's show, Bill and I both admitted to being

socialists and we threw Barack Obama in with us.

GLENN: Two weeks ago.

PAT: Wait a minute. You and Bill Maher said that Obama is a socialist?

GLENN: No, no, no. He's tired of people saying it's a socialist mop. That's

causing panic.

PAT: Where is the outrage?

GLENN: You're calling him names. Stop with the name calling.

PAT: Where is the hatred? Why the hate? Why the fear mongering?

STU: Yeah. And by the way, you weren't in fact, we said on this program that he

had said it on the air before, that he

PAT: Yes, we did.

STU: Lawrence O'Donnell. And, in fact, let's see if we can follow this. This is

a quote from Lawrence O'Donnell, 2005. Quote, I'm a European socialist. Believe

me. I'm far to the left, but I understand. I'm kind of a practical socialist. I

know we failed. A lot of our ideas have failed. So, I am not with them anymore.

Then it goes on to, Tell me again. Glenn Beck is the one that's hard to follow,

the guy who just did that little spiel about how great socialism is also said

this: The country basically likes the simplicity of those damn oil companies are

charging too much for gasoline. Let's do something about that. The country has

not been educated that you create a bigger problem by trying to do something

about high gas prices. American liberal rhetoric, in general, has more appeal

than, certainly, the free market does. The free market position has a lot of

logic and a lot of rational analysis that you need a fair amount of education to

do. Unfortunately, I suspect it takes almost at least a college level of

education in economics to fully embrace the market's power or to fully go that

way.

GLENN: So, what is he saying?

STU: So, he's saying he seems to be very pro market and also very pro socialism.

I can't follow this guy.

GLENN: Yeah. He's very hard to follow.

STU: It's weird.

GLENN: Well, he maybe a state capitalist. That's it, China. I mean, he's a state

capitalist. Maybe. I don't know. I don't know here's the thing, Larry. I don't

follow your career and neither does anyone in America.

PAT: No. His viewer must have been really confused.

GLENN: No, no, no. The cameraman I think the cameraman was there, you know. In

2005 when he said that.

PAT: It's possible.

STU: But at least he's being honest.

GLENN: No, no, no. I actually praise him. I praise him, too.

STU: Here's a guy who's a liberal and a socialist, knows that there's political

damage to calling Barack Obama a socialist, and still admits it.

GLENN: Yeah. And he's not afraid of it. I think this is great. This is the

problem with George Soros. They're still denying that says all these things.

They're still denying that there is a shadow they had the shadow convention.

Hello! And, yet, somehow or the other they're still trying to convince America

that it didn't happen and how many slubs in America are willing to just go with

that, oh, yeah, well, that's just crazy talk. The shadow convention. At least

Larry O'Donnell is willing to admit it and for that I praise him. For that,

being intellectually honest, is really more than I have seen from left, right,

or in between on most cable shows.

PAT: Except for who he talked about, Bill Maher, and we've mentioned that. Bill

Maher is

GLENN: Bill Maher is a despicable human being.

PAT: He's a hideous guy.

GLENN: He's a hideous guy.

PAT: But he's honest.

GLENN: Everybody laughs at him because they think it's a joke, but he really

does mean drag them to it.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

 

If there is any doubt about the radical agenda in our school systems, this California teacher just put that to bed. She asked to remain anonymous and courageously agreed to join Glenn on radio Wednesday and provided a document all about the mandatory training the teachers in her school district all had to complete.

They are not required to implement the training in actual curriculum but they are encouraged to talk to their kids about it. She asked colleagues what they thought about the training and many said that it was not sitting right with them but maybe it was because they had racist tendencies themselves.

Here's how the conversation went:

Once again, the media has failed to carry out even the most cursory investigation when it comes to allegations against Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.). But investigative journalist David Steinberg has been piecing together "32 new, verifiable, archived pieces of evidence" that indicate Omar conducted the "most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history."

Steinberg joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail how the pieces fit together in his latest report available on TheBlaze.com.

"It's over," Steinberg told Glenn. "There's really nothing left. It's all ... the publicly available documentation that anyone would need to be convinced that, for eight years, [Omar] married her brother to commit immigration fraud. And this marriage fraud also was in the service of education fraud/student loan fraud. And along the line, we have evidence, that she filed at least two years of fraudulent tax returns, possibly eight [years]. We have evidence that she perjured herself eight times during her 2017 divorce from this man. And along the way, of course, we know she was living in public housing. We also know she was likely receiving subsidized child care.

"Essentially, almost everything she put her name on for eight years was perjury or fraud. And it all adds up to likely the most extensive spree of state and federal felonies by an elected congressperson in U.S. history. I really have no other way to put it. That's how big this is."

The extreme-left idea that gender is "fluid" is a complete denial of science, according to sex researcher and neuroscientist Dr. Debra Soh.

Dr. Soh joined Glenn Beck on his latest podcast to talk about her new book, "THE END OF GENDER: Debunking the Myths about Sex & Identity in Our Society" and to offer a hard dose of objective truth about gender and sexual orientation based on scientific facts.

She also explained why she had to leave academia to be able to speak freely about sex and identity, and how — despite being a liberal — the far-left is actively trying to cancel her for saying there are biological differences between men and women.

In February 2020, Glenn Beck and his research team uncovered an alleged multi-billion dollar money laundering scheme which lead to a missing $1.8 billion in U.S. aid sent to Ukraine during the Obama administration, all of which pointed to Igor Kolomoisky, the corrupt Ukrainian billionaire at the center of it all.

If you missed Glenn's February special, "Ukraine: The Final Piece," you can find it here.

This week, the FBI raided the offices of U.S. companies owned by Kolomoisky in Cleveland and Miami. Additionally, the Department of Justice accused the Ukrainian oligarch of stealing billions of dollars from PrivatBank and then laundering the money through a network of companies all over the world. Kolomoisky and partner, Hennadiy Boholyubov, owned PrivatBank until December 2016, when Ukraine nationalized the bank because billions of dollars had gone missing.

Kolomoisky has ties to the Ukrainian gas firm Burisma, former Burisma board member Hunter Biden, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, whose phone call with President Donald Trump was central to the Democrats' now-failed impeachment attempt.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn spoke with chief researcher Jason Buttrill about these latest developments.

"Yeah, $1.8 billion of [taxpayer] money that just vanished has now been found, or at least part of it, in Miami and Cleveland," Glenn said.

"I can't believe it's taken this long," Jason responded. "You said in February that [Kolomoisky] was the key to finding out where the money went. And we're talking about $1.8 billion dollars — $1.8 billion! That could finance a small war."

"That money went to PrivatBank — that's Kolomoisky's bank," he continued. "It was later nationalized after they found out all this money was mysteriously going missing. But it went through a bank in Cypress then, poof, it was laundered all over the world. [...] We also showed, in one of the previous shows, that there were wire transfers going from Burisma, which Kolomoisky is the managing principal of, to Hunter Biden."

Glenn and Jason also talked about recent reports from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) alleging ties between American revolutionaries, such as Antifa, and Marxist terrorists in Syria, which BlazeTV exposed back in June. Find out more here.
