GLENN: I want to go over the WikiLeaks and last hour I asked you, are you

surprised by anything that is coming out of the WikiLeaks stories? Are you

surprised that these documents show that China has helped Iran with a bomb? No.

We told you that. Are you surprised that North Korea may have supplied a bomb to

Iran? No. We told you they were doing that. Are you surprised that Putin is not

a friend of the United States? No, you'd have to be a dead man. Are you

surprised that we're in a really difficult situation with our, quote, ally

Pakistan? Are you surprised that the major funder of Al Qaeda is Saudi Arabia?

No, I'm not surprised by any of these. Are you? Is anyone in America surprised

by these? So why is this coming out? Why is this coming out? If you look at the

headline of the Drudge Report, it gives you a clue. Now, I understand that it's

just the Drudge Report, but I think it's interesting that the headline is

WikiLeaks turns on Obama. If you notice, there seems to be a gap here. There's

no George Bush stuff, or very little. It's, most of it is Obama stuff. Turns on

Obama. Who where did these documents come from? These documents came from a guy,

Bradley Manning. He is apparently upset with I don't know his whole story. He

was jilted by a boyfriend or something and... I don't know. But who's supporting

him? And are there any connections to WikiLeaks, to spooky dude? Well, we spent

the weekend having our researchers look into it. Yes, surprisingly enough. Let's

take a look at who's supporting the guy who is releasing all of this and who's

helping WikiLeaks. Who's involved? Are there any ties? And then maybe we'll

answer the question, why is this coming out? We'll give you that here coming up

in a second.

(OUT 10:16)

GLENN: So let's take a look here. Let's take a look at Bradley Manning

supporters. This is the guy who actually got the documents to WikiLeaks. Code

Pink. Code Pink, Code Pink. Wait a minute. Code Pink is related to Bill Ayers

and Bernardine Dohrn and the whole anti Israel thing. Remember the flotilla? I

believe Code Pink, doesn't Code Pink, can you look in? I think Code Pink gets

money from Soros. Noam Chomsky, love Noam. You like Noam?

PAT: I've always loved Noam.

GLENN: He's wonderful. He's a communist. Michael Moore. Hmmm.

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: Then you have the Movement for Democratic Society. Now, what is the

Movement for Democratic Society?

PAT: That must be good. It's got "Democratic" in it.

GLENN: It is. It's the adult counterpart of the Students for a Democratic

Society. So it's like the Grey Panthers and the Black Panthers. The Grey

Panthers are the old ones? Now, who's the guy who started SDS back in the 1960s?

He's the guy who's now running the Open Society Institute for George Soros. Oh.

So that's

PAT: Hmmm.

GLENN: That's good. WikiLeaks founders when they started to talk about the need

to raise $5 million, they said the only ones that had this kind of money that

could do what they were looking to do was the CIA or George Soros. And they

complained that the original the initial round of publicity had, quote, affected

our delicate negotiations with the Open Society Institute.

Now, I'm sure George Soros, because he's come out and he has said he is so

against this WikiLeaks thing, he is so against it. Uh huh. WikiLeaks' advisory

board member was a director of the China office of Human Rights Watch, which is

Soros funded. Which the WikiLeaks editor, you know, he's hiding out in Great

Britain, he's represented by attorney Mark Stevens, which is weird because

Stevens also does pro bono work for the Open Society Institute. Isn't that

weird? Huh. The Soros funded Kenya Human Rights Commission published an award

winning WikiLeaks report and its editor, one Julian Assange, won the Amnesty

International 2009 media award for the report Cry of Blood, and Soros should

know something about the Cry of Blood. Soros, of course, funded the Kenya

National Commission on Human Rights. So we have that going for us.

So now what am I alleging here? Well, I remind you of the, what is it, 1945 or

'46 uprising in Czechoslovakia where the people at the top had a different

agenda and they infiltrated the government of Czechoslovakia. They were

communists and they infiltrated. And then unbeknownst to the average person they

orchestrated all kinds of events on the ground, caused chaos, and had people to

cry out to the government who they thought were on their side. "You've got to

stop the madness." It's bottom up, top down and inside out. It is the theory

that Van Jones, who George Soros has courted since his time in Oakland, he has

paid for every step of the way, Van Jones. Van Jones is a George Soros

operative. And quite frankly probably the one with the brightest future. Top

down, bottom up, inside out.

What are people saying right now? Can't we stop these people? Can't we stop

these people? How do we stop WikiLeaks? So the people are crying out, stop the

release of this information. But you'll notice that the information isn't

surprising. It's all information you already knew. And it verifies that your

government is lying to you, which gives you two things. One, a distrust of

government, which we showed you in the Soros special is, what, Step Number 3 or

Step Number 4? Make sure people don't trust the government. Well, there you go.

Now you don't trust the government to tell you the truth. Why? Because they're

lying to you. But now you have verification that they're lying to you. And at

the same time you have people crying out, can't we stop these people? Hmmm. So

the bottom rises up and people cry out, can't we stop them, and the top, of

course, is there to make sure things like this just don't happen for your

protection. I'm sorry, I don't agree with WikiLeaks and I don't agree with

Julian Assange. I don't, I don't think these are good guys. But so far all they

have done is release the fact that your government has been lying to you. Not

surprising. I haven't seen names of people. That's what concerns me, operatives.

I think this is extraordinarily dangerous. But I reserve my right to cry out for

them being shut down on put into jail, for a government that I do trust. I'm

sorry I'm unwilling when I've got a government shutting down websites for Prada

purses but they won't shut this one down. They will shut the Prada purses down

on the same weekend that they are frisking grandma at the airport and yet they

still won't recognize that there are people who are Islamic and crazy and want

to kill us. They won't recognize that.

Our president has talked about Republicans, conservatives and tea parties as

being the enemies. Hmmm. No, I don't, I don't think I trust him or anyone around

him to bring the top down and silence people, especially since it's

coincidentally the week that the FCC is deciding whether or not they are going

to help in Net neutrality, which would regulate the Internet. Oh, that will be

helpful. And Howard Dean is talking about how MSNBC and Fox should be curtailed.

Again, what did I say? They will gladly throw MSNBC to the wolves because they

have already played their role. They are no longer useful to them. So they will

discard them. They are also being sold to another channel, and you know that any

businessman is going to look at that model and say you've practically destroyed

NBC. So sorry, guys, we have to reset. So, of course, they'll throw that one.

"You know what? We'll give you MSNBC. You just give us Fox." No, I don't think

that's a fair trade. No. Sorry. Back in a minute.


Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
