Glenn Beck: Chris Christie Porn



TheBlaze:


Classic Christie: Vows to ‘Punch’ Teachers Unions

GLENN: All right. So anyway, here's Chris Christie and talking about the

situation of education and what should be said to parents by the principals.

PAT: And the first thing he pointed out is that throwing money at the education

problem doesn't help.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: $25,000 per student in New York or Newark, and their education system

sucks.

CHRISTIE: Yet, yet 104,000 students are trapped in New Jersey today in 205

chronically failing stools. In 2009, 40% of New Jersey's African American

students and 32% of our Hispanic students were unable to meet any basic

standards on the national tests.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

CHRISTIE: In 2009 nearly 30% of all eighth graders in New Jersey, not just our

urban challenged children but of all eighth grade students in New Jersey lacked

basic math skills.

REPORTER: Governor Christie said he wished failing schools would be honest with

parents.

GLENN: Now, listen to this.

REPORTER: He said on back to school nights this should what should happen.

CHRISTIE: Principal should walk into the classroom and say, parents, good

evening, I'm the principal and I want to welcome you to back to school night.

Your teacher this year is Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Smith is an awful teacher.

(Laughter). Really seriously by any measure, she's not good.

STU: (Laughing).

CHRISTIE: Her students underachieve consistently on testing, they don't like

coming to her class. She doesn't really care. She's using the same lesson plans

that she used 15 years ago. And no matter what we've tried to do to encourage

her to get more training, to change her attitude, she simply refuses to do it.

Now, our problem is that because of this union contract we have in our district,

we can't fire her or do anything to her.

PAT: Wow.

CHRISTIE: So as much as we've tried, we just have concluded that we're not going

to change her. Have a great year. (Applause).

GLENN: Fantastic.

CHRISTIE: The worst schools are continuing to be allowed to operate without any

effort systematically to fix them. It is time for us to stand up and demand that

the teachers, the principals and the administrators truly do what the teachers

union says they do every day.

GLENN: Okay.

CHRISTIE: Putting the children first.

GLENN: Stop. This is the deal. This can sound like an anti teacher rant. It's an

anti bad teacher rant. And the teachers unions keep all unions keep the worst

people as part of the team. The idea, unions are socialist in nature. Everybody

gets paid the same. There's nobody better or worse. And you just have to carry

the weakest among you. And that's not good. That's not good.

Now, I know 90% of the union workers like last night we were in a union theater.

We couldn't move a chair. That's ridiculous. That's ridiculous. I mean, I almost

had to go into the cafeteria and have a union member pull the chair out from the

table so I could sit. I mean, it's ridiculous.

STU: Yeah, the rules are ridiculous. Nice guys and everything.

GLENN: They were great guys and they did their job.

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: I didn't see a single lazy person at that theater. They were great. They

were great. But the union rules are ridiculous and there are those union members

that suck. And they should be fired. Now, I didn't see any last night, but I've

worked with unions many times and most of the people are great. It's the union

leadership that is out of step, that don't care, that are all about their own

pensions. That's why their union pensions up the he top are all fully funded,

sometimes at 120%. But the worker? Their pensions are not. And those are the

ones that are in trouble. The leadership? Oh, they got theirs. They got theirs.

Union members need to wake up. It's the leadership that's the problem.

 

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."
