Elton John On His Charity Work: Government Should Be Doing Our Job For

Us But They’re Not

GLENN: All righty. Could we play, could we play Elton John and his latest

comment? I want you to understand that this is where the progressive left is,

and this explains everything. This is why we don't understand each other

anymore.

PAT: He's at his AIDS charity.

ELTON JOHN: I'm set up as charity so I can help people. I know a lot of

charities are set up by, you know, the Gates Foundation, the World Health

Organization, the Clinton Foundation because they want to help people. And it

seems that individuals are trying to help people, whereas government should be

doing this adjunct for us but unfortunately they are not. And so we have to step

up to the plate and try and do as much as we can.

PAT: Is that amazing?

GLENN: That -- that's the progressive understanding.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: The government --

PAT: It is.

GLENN: -- should be doing this, but we are going to have to help people now.

PAT: It is exactly upside down.

GLENN: Yes. Remember the inverted pyramid that I showed you before?

PAT: Yeah. Yes.

GLENN: I showed you -- I mean, that was part of the American Revival was the

inverted pyramid that they have inverted. They have made God almost nonexistent,

where that was the base of the pyramid before. Now government is the base.

Government used to be the point of the pyramid. Now it's the base and God used

to be the base and now it's the point. It's the smallest part.

PAT: It's incredible that this is everything, society's been completely turned

on its head.

GLENN: Upside down. Of course it has. Did you guys -- go ahead.

PAT: If you look at private donations, at individual donors, it is like ten

times what governments get.

GLENN: Of course it is.

PAT: Americans at least. I can't speak for the other countries because they are

not nearly as generous as Americans are. But Americans give about ten times the

aid.

GLENN: Look, this is not about charity. Understand that. The government, we all

think that it is really, really incompetent. No, it's not. It's not incompetent.

It is good at what it is actually trying to do and that is take the wealth from

the wealthy and give it to the poor. And give it to their own special interests

and their cronies. That's what this system is.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It is all on the -- the charitable thing is a front.

PAT: Absolutely.

STU: I would not say they are good at redistributing the wealth from the rich to

the poor even. I mean, they just give it, you're right, to the special interests

and things like that.

PAT: Yes.

STU: And you look at Elton here, here's a guy who's -- this is coming from I

think a good place. The sentiment here is good. Did he say, "I don't believe

that the government is working and I'm going to step in on my own."

GLENN: Yes.

STU: But he has the idea, as you said, Glenn, the pyramid is completely upside

down.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: And he doesn't even realize it.

 

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
