Sharpton: Rush can say what he wants... except

GLENN: I'm telling you I've never seen anything like this. It is so well coordinated. While everyone is talking about the Julian Assange thing, you have and that is huge. Huge. You have the other hand doing something insidious. Pat's going to set up the clips that we have here, but we are looking at the end of the Internet as you know it, the end of talk radio as you know it, the end of cable news as you know it, most likely the end of communication, newspaper, et cetera, et cetera, as you know it.

Now, anyone who says this is crazy, this is not what they are going to use for it, you are a fool. You are a fool. You listen to Mark Lloyd who talked about the glorious revolution of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. He is a diversity czar at the FCC. If you look at who is involved now at the FCC, it's members of Free Press.

I had somebody who was with the NAB who shall remain nameless that was at a White House function and they were standing there and they didn't know who he was; he didn't really know who they were. He had no idea this is about a year ago no idea what was really going on and he said he started talking to people and they just openly said, "Oh, yeah, well, we're going to do this to the Internet and to radio and these things." And he said they were openly discussing it, until they found out that he was a member of the NAB and then they got a little quiet. It's coming. And we must be aware of it and, you know, if people say, oh, well, you know, oh, they are not going to do it, fine. Move on from those people. But you have to prepare.

Now, listen to the case that they are building now.

PAT: Well, the FCC, just had the audio of the FCC commissioner Michael Copps from last week and then there was new audio about him talking about how the FCC needs to control the Internet. And not only the Internet but prime time television and minute details like the characters that are developed, how many minority characters they have on prime time television, the kind of programming that the TV stations program. Virtually everything.

GLENN: Do we have we have this. This is all up on The Blaze, isn't it?

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: That was posted yesterday. So let me look what that is so you can go right to TheBlaze.com. You have free Internet, a civil right. Quote, quote: For every nappy headed child.

PAT: We have that, too.

GLENN: That is FCC commissioner Clyburn. Then you have power grab, FCC commissioner calls for government run values test.

PAT: That's the one I was just talking about.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Where everybody has to go up for licensing renewal every four years.

GLENN: Four years.

PAT: It's eight years now and it's virtually assured. I mean, if you are not doing something really illegal, your license is going to be renewed. He's talking about some sort of test now where they really scrutinize every single individual radio station.

GLENN: And I've told you before, I told you I think this two years ago that they were going to come forget about do you remember me saying forget about the Fairness Doctrine. That's not nearly big enough. They're not going for the Fairness Doctrine.

PAT: Nope.

GLENN: And I said that they were going to go for local boards. Have you heard any talk yet about local boards? Because what they'll do is they will put people in charge locally to monitor the radio stations, et cetera, et cetera. And this is, voices like mine will be gone. Voices like Rush Limbaugh, gone. No doubt about it.

Now, I want you to listen to some of the audio.

PAT: Al Sharpton is out really pushing this stuff. He is

GLENN: Now, just so you know, we're not saying that this is going to happen because Al Sharpton. What we're doing is we're laying a case that the left is surrounding this whole issue. And I do I do believe that the Julian Assange thing is going to also play a role in it. The Internet is going to become intentionally designed, going to become so dangerous that they are going to say, we've got to clamp down, we've got to clamp down. Do not give them the power to do this. Congress is not. Congress said no; the Court said no. The FCC is voting on this. They are going to do it anyway through regulation. Cass Sunstein, our regulatory czar, they are going to do it through regulation December 21st is when they're voting on it.

PAT: And here's what Sharpton said yesterday.

SHARPTON: Rush Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants to say.

STU: What's his name?

SHARPTON: He does not have

PAT: Rush lumbar.

STU: Rush lumbar?

PAT: Lumbar. Like that back support that you have in your car or something?

SHARPTON: Rush Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants to say. He does not have the right to do it, though, on publicly regulated airwaves. The FCC has the responsibility to set standards to say the public cannot be offended based on their race or their gender.

STU: What?

SHARPTON: In this country

GLENN: Stop.

PAT: That is amazing.

GLENN: You don't have a right to not be offended.

PAT: Nope. It's discrimination. You don't have the right to discriminate against anybody based on race

GLENN: Anything.

PAT: or gender or sexual orientation.

GLENN: But listen.

PAT: You can offend people because you can't set that standard. How do you set the standard that you can't offend someone?

GLENN: But I want you to go back to Mark Lloyd and the audio that we played over two years ago or year and a half ago of him saying that it is time for people to step down so others can have power. He is they are not this is Al Sharpton's angle, that you can't be offended. But the other is, well, this is about minorities, this is about discrimination because the other point of view is not heard and minorities don't own radio or television. Only like, what is it, like 3% or 5% own radio or television networks. And so that needs they need to be minorities that do that. This is why ACORN got into radio. ACORN has radio. Did you know that? Yeah. Yeah. Why? Why do you think?

All right. So here's some more.

PAT: So this is Bertha Lewis now speaking of ACORN.

GLENN: ACORN.

PAT: And she is beating the same drum that Al Sharpton is, just a little bit louder.

BERTHA LEWIS: And when you have an outlet like Fox which is so insidious, you know, this is what should be investigated. These people are using our airwaves.

GLENN: No, they're not.

BERTHA LEWIS: The public airwaves.

GLENN: Cable!

PAT: First of all, Fox is cable. Cable.

STU: Cable and not

PAT: Not public airwaves.

GLENN: That is why

PAT: Cable. Different delivery system.

GLENN: That's why HBO and Skin emax can show nudity. That's why you can say the F bomb a hundred times on cable. Because cable is unregulated. Airwaves are not. Now they're making the case that cable needs to be regulated.

PAT: Same with the internet.

GLENN: Yep.

PAT: They don't belong in that, either.

GLENN: Yep.

BERTHA LEWIS: And when you have such an organization and have these vast resources that can repeat and repeat and repeat and say, "Oh, mainstream media, progressive media, why aren't you covering what we're talking about" and you get folks that go along and it's lazy journalism. Even today, after pounding us I have to admit it was so overwhelming, it was a political tsunami, you know, beating us to a pulp, not having defenders, not having the resources to defend ourselves and

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

BERTHA LEWIS: beating us to death.

PAT: Other than the president of the United States.

BERTHA LEWIS: Right now it's not enough that we won, we beat ACORN, we beat them down, the largest community group and so we cleared the way for the fake Tea Party, now we've become political necrophiliacs. Not only did we kill this organization but we're going to dig them up and we're going to have all kinds of congress kick the corpse over and over again. So political necrophiliacs like Beck, like Murdoch, like Fox, like Limbaugh, like Mr. Breitbart.

STU: I love the host, though.

BERTHA LEWIS: They should be called out for what they really are. They're (inaudible) eaters, they're nasty, they're evil, they're liars, thieves and cheaters.

PAT: Jeez.

STU: That's it, though.

PAT: That's all.

BERTHA LEWIS: And I think we should use this because now folks

PAT: If anybody knows liars, it's the people at ACORN.

BERTHA LEWIS: They say that's it, enough is enough, we know what these guys do.

PAT: Wow.

BERTHA LEWIS: And so we might as well fight.

GLENN: Might as well fight.

BERTHA LEWIS: Because if you cower and you back down, they come after you even harder.

GLENN: Oh, believe me, I know.

BERTHA LEWIS: Why is why, you know, the old ACORN chapters reorganize, regroup. I formed the Black Institute working, you know, with the New York

STU: Exactly what you said was going to happen.

GLENN: Yep, I said they would just go undercover, change names.

BERTHA LEWIS: We're not going to go away.

GLENN: Exactly right.

BERTHA LEWIS: But Breitbart and all of the rightwing blocks continue.

PAT: She just contradicted herself. First she says they're dead, they are not going to go away. Then she admits exactly what Glenn predicted, that they just changed their name and went somewhere else.

STU: Yeah, her whole point is that they keep coming after her even though they're dead.

GLENN: We're going to come back to this here in a second, but I want to say this: I want you to understand very clearly. Listen to the language she's saying. They're evil. They're evil. You have Jim Wallis doing the same thing. You have Van Jones last week, the audio where calling Fox evil.

PAT: Satan.

GLENN: Satan, Satan is into everything, Satan is into everything. We are entering a period of time unlike the world has seen in a very long time. We are entering good versus evil, I mean truly good versus evil. And there is no middle ground. I think I said this to you a year or two ago. There's going to come a time where you cannot stand on the sidelines. There will be no sidelines. You are on one side or the other. You must, if you know anyone who is close to opening their minds, you must get them to open their minds now. Because the lines are being drawn now and those who are sitting silently by and think, "Well, I'm not having to make a decision," they are making a decision. They are. And it will be too late. The boat will sail and they will find themselves on one side or the other. You must know what is true. You must search everything inside of you. Get any kind of darkness outside of you. Get stop all lies in your life. Clean everything out. Because everything will burn down to the ground. Everything will. Julian Assange is just part of it.

When we don't have time to communicate, when we don't communicate with each other anymore, if they pass these things in the FCC, if they do these things, I cannot tell you a year from now that we will have access on the Internet to each other. I cannot tell you that we will be on Fox. I cannot tell you that I will be on radio. I don't know. But I will tell you this: Look for me in your town square. Because I will, just like Whitefield, go from town to town to town. You will have to imprison me or kill me to keep me silent. And I challenge you to have the same kind of commitment to what you believe in, and I challenge you to have the commitment of peace and love because the Lord will conquer. You just must be on the right side. You must be standing in His will. He doesn't pick a side. We do. And we I'm telling you He will not fail. He will not fail. We will if we think the way we always have. If we think this is just no big deal. If you don't think out of the box. The world is changing, and you and your family will survive if you align yourself with things that are true. But it's hard to do in America today. It's hard to do in this world today. Everything is set up against it and everyone is trying to make you feel stupid or crazy for doing it. Don't let that stop you. Let them call you every name under the sun. Let them chastise you. It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. Great and powerful darkness and great and powerful light are coming. Make sure you know the difference between the two because when you have to choose, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between the two.

 

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.

Watch the video clip below:

Fellow BlazeTV host, Mark Levin, joined Glenn Beck on his exclusive Friday episode of "GlennTV" to discuss why the declassified list of Obama administration officials who were aware of the details of Gen. Michael Flynn's wiretapped phone calls are so significant.

Glenn argued that Obama built a covert bureaucracy to "transform America" for a long time to come, and Gen. Flynn was targeted because he happened to know "where the bodies were buried", making him a threat to Obama's "secret legacy."

Levin agreed, noting the "shocking extent of the police state tactics" by the Obama administration. He recalled several scandalous happenings during Obama's "scandal free presidency," which nobody seems to remember.

Colleges and universities should be home to a lively and open debate about questions both current and timeless, independent from a political bias or rules that stifle speech. Unfortunately for students, speaking out about personal beliefs or challenging political dogma can be a dangerous undertaking. I experienced this firsthand as an undergraduate, and I'm fighting that trend now as an adjunct professor.

In 2013, Glenn Beck was one of the most listened to radio personalities in the world. For a college senior with hopes of working on policy and media, a job working for Glenn was a ticket to big things. I needed a foot in the door and hoped to tap into the alumni network at the small liberal arts school where I was an undergrad. When I met with a career services specialist in early March 2013 about possible alumni connections to Glenn Beck, she disdainfully told me: "Why would you want to work for someone like him?" That was the beginning and end of our conversation.

I was floored by her response, and sent an email to the school complaining that her behavior was inappropriate. Her personal opinions, political or otherwise, I argued, shouldn't play a role in the decision to help students.

That isn't the kind of response a student should hear when seeking guidance and help in kick starting their career. Regardless of the position, a career specialist or professors' opinion or belief shouldn't be a factor in whether the student deserves access to the alumni network and schools' resources.

Now, seven years later, I work full time for a law firm and part time as an adjunct teaching business to undergraduate students. The culture at colleges and universities seems to have gotten even worse, unfortunately, since I was an undergrad.

College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions.

I never want to see a student told they shouldn't pursue their goals, regardless of their personal or political beliefs. College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions. I never got access to the alumni network or schools' resources from the career services office.

Lucky for students in 2020, there are several legal organizations that help students protect their rights when an issue goes beyond what can be handled by an undergraduate facing tremendous pressure from a powerful academic institution. Organizations like Speech First and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for instance, are resources I wish I knew about at the time.

When I experienced mistreatment from my college, I spoke up and challenged the behavior by emailing the administration and explaining what happened. I received a letter from the career services specialist apologizing for the "unprofessional comment."

What she described in that apology as a "momentary lapse of good judgement" was anything but momentary. It was indicative of the larger battle for ideas that has been happening on college campuses across the country. In the past seven years, the pressure, mistreatment and oppression of free expression have only increased. Even right now, some are raising concerns that campus administrations are using the COVID-19 pandemic to limit free speech even further. Social distancing guidelines and crowd size may both be used to limit or refuse controversial speakers.

Students often feel pressure to conform to a college or university's wishes. If they don't, they could be expelled, fail a class or experience other retribution. The college holds all the cards. On most campuses, the burden of proof for guilt in student conduct hearings is "more likely than not," making it very difficult for students to stand up for their rights without legal help.

As an adjunct professor, every student who comes to me for help in finding purpose gets my full support and my active help — even if the students' goals run counter to mine. But I have learned something crucial in my time in this role: It's not the job of an educator to dictate a student's purpose in life. I'm meant to help them achieve their dreams, no matter what.
