Fareed Zakaria doubles downs on his stupidity

GLENN: Fareed Zakaria, it's only a matter of time. This is we have the greatest job ever. I believe we have the greatest job of all time. Because these dopes destroy themselves every single time.

PAT: With their own words.

GLENN: Every time.

PAT: It's really pretty stunning.

GLENN: Yeah. So Fareed Zakaria, he comes out and he is yelling at me for numbers of how many Islamic terrorists there are and we quote, what is the source again, Stu?

PAT: It's the world opinion poll.

GLENN: Which is a huge, widely respected poll.

PAT: Oh, it's cited by the left all the time.

GLENN: And you use the we use their numbers and we take the low numbers of that poll.

PAT: Yeah, the most I think also the most restrictive definition of terrorism in the attacks on civilians in the United States. We're not even talking about like attacking

PAT: People who support them. In certain countries it's up to 39% I think of people, of Muslims who support

STU: Right. And that's for attacks on civilians in America.

PAT: Dying in America.

STU: I mean, you can easily go I think to a much wider definition of things like, you know

GLENN: Attacking American soldiers.

STU: Attacking American soldiers, attacking people from America that just happen to be working in Muslim countries. We have asked very specific questions about this and there's far too much support in the Muslim world for it.

PAT: And look, you could make the case that 10% of, I don't know, the American people are mentally ill, couldn't you? Could you make a could you make the case of 30 million people in this country have some serious mental issues?

STU: Probably.

PAT: I mean, you can make the case that 11% believe we didn't go to the moon. You can make the case that, there's a certain percentage, around 10% usually of just plain, kind of nutty people.

STU: And it seems for whatever reason Fareed Zakaria was absolutely mesmerized by the fact that a small percentage of a large number is also a large number.

PAT: Whoa!

STU: That's just a fundamental thing that goes on with percentages. That's what happens.

PAT: Let me break it to you, Fareed. That works with taxation, too.

GLENN: So here he is, Fareed Zakaria, he digs this hole after he is doing an interview with George Soros, and George Soros says that I'm becoming a dictator. And he's like, yes, I know, he's crazy. And so Fareed is clearly, you're not getting let's just put it this way. I'm not getting an interview with George Soros. Insiders tell us they're a little concerned because maybe you're starting to be a little unstable through all of this.

PAT: Oh, I hope not. I hope not.

GLENN: Are you okay? Because we're a little concerned that this is really bothering you, the way we're exposing you. And I, gosh, I hope that you're okay, Mr. Soros. I hope that you if there's medication that you should take or whatever. I don't know, but see a doctor. Don't become unstable. Don't become unglued. It's going to be okay. I know we're exposing all the things and you don't like to be exposed, but it's going to be okay.

So Fareed is talking to George Soros. Then he comes after me and targets me. Then Fareed, we take his argument apart two times and he decides to go on television yet again and do a little interview about this and now, of course, as they always do, they expose themselves for who they really are. Here is the proud CNN host Fareed Zakaria on the American people.

VOICE: Do you have faith in the American people that we can do this?

ZAKARIA: No, I think the people are the big problem. I mean, Americans, everybody wants to say the American people are so wonderful. You know, I think that when they come to recognize that they have to make sacrifices, too, that it's not just wasteful they need to have... I mean, you know, they need to recognize that some of what's going to happen here is fewer, they have to consume fewer things. They have to accept slightly higher taxes. And in the long run you will have a much better economy.

PAT: No. He thinks the people of America are the big problem. They have to understand that they must do with less. I love that. I love that. He's got contempt for the American people. And then you wonder why he's so upset with any fact and figure that goes against his little view of world. You know, that's great. That's great. These people, these anti American and, you know, this is I'm just getting this from him. If you don't like the American people, if you think the American people are the big problem, does that make you

GLENN: Anti American?

PAT: Anti American?

STU: I mean, I think you can be critical of the American people without being anti American but I mean, I you wonder, you know, as a guy who takes the time to do a segment on his television show to defend Muslims who want Americans to die in terrorist attacks and yet also does another segment where he's critical of the American people as the problem for all the economy because we're too selfish, you wonder why what's the opinion? Where is the basis for those two, those two opinions working together?

GLENN: I hate the whole un American, anti American because what does that even mean anymore? What does that mean, really? You can be an anticonstitutionalist? But anti American? Americans, the idea behind America is that we can have our own point of view and we can wildly disagree with each other and still all be Americans.

STU: Right.

GLENN: So I hate that. Anticonstitutionalist? Anti American citizen maybe? I don't you know, I don't know. I don't know.

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: I just think he's

PAT: Do a little research, Fareed, and find out what the American people do for the rest of the world.

STU: That would be nice.

PAT: That's all I asks. $307 billion last year in charitable donations. $307 billion! Nobody is keeping everything they have. Or very few are. Very few are. Check into what the American people do. And have always done for this world.

GLENN: I would love to see these I'd love to see and there's no way you can do it. I just love to see these guys' charitable givings. Wouldn't you? Wouldn't you just love to see?

PAT: Would I.

GLENN: When you're a politician, you have to show your charitable givings and how much was it? Was it $1,000 that Joe Biden gave one year?

PAT: Yeah, if that. It was I think it was like $300 one year.

GLENN: I mean, it's these guys that are always preaching that they are, you know, people are greedy and everything else, they keep all of their money.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They keep all of their money.

PAT: Yeah, I'd love to see what Fareed gives. I'd love to see what Jim Wallis gives. I'd love to see what Bernie Sanders gives.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: It would be fantastic if we got a

GLENN: Keith Olbermann.

PAT: Keith Olbermann, yeah.

GLENN: Michael Moore.

PAT: Because we have seen, you know, the Barack Obamas and Joe Bidens of the world and here they are out there talking about how stingy the rich is. They're talking about themselves because other rich people, other wealthy share what they have, willingly. Willingly. They give to charity and in abundance many of them.

GLENN: Yeah, I'm amazed at the that's where usually people see in others what they despise in themselves. You know what I mean? It's not always the case. But they just, they for instance, I think it's very, very clear in the progressive left, the uber left and not all lefties are like this. A lot of lefties really do give. A lot.

STU: Sure.

GLENN: It's just a very small percentage in compared to conservatives. And that's not me saying that. Fareed, you should look this up. Conservatives and God fearing people in particular are the ones that give the most. That's why we have always been this charitable nation. Because Ben Franklin said that's our religion. Our religion is there is a God, we're going to answer to him. Best way to please him is to serve him, and the best way to serve him is to help others and serve other people. That was the American religion. That's why it's no mystery why we're so giving. It's because that was the American religion. But now that we're chasing religion out, you're going to see those numbers continue to drop. And Americans will be less and less charitable. And the left will blame it on whatever. Now, that doesn't mean that you can't be giving and atheist. There are. It doesn't mean that you can't be on the left and beginning. There are. But the numbers bear out that the most giving are the God fearing and the conservatives. That's just, those are just the facts. Period.

STU: Yeah. Americans are extraordinarily generous in a world from a world perspective and from a, you know, inside America perspective, conservatives are the ones that are giving more.

GLENN: Correct. And it kills me. Because what they do is they see their own friends in Central Park who their charitable giving is, "Well, I'm going to make sure that this Rembrandt is preserved in my living room forever." You know

PAT: That's an important donation.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean

PAT: That's important.

GLENN: And they stand around, they stand around at these charitable art gallery crap and they're like, yes, we've got to you know, no one is helping the poor now. The government's just not doing enough. And they give at their cocktail parties for the galleries. And somebody's got to give to the galleries. I understand. We've got to preserve the art and everything else. But they don't do it themselves. They don't see their friends doing it.

STU: You are right. If the art was good, people would just be dying it. There wouldn't need to be any donations going on because there would be demand for it. I mean, I know that's crazy sentiment.

PAT: I'm not a huge advocate of it, you know?

GLENN: No, I'm totally fine. You give to art galleries, you give to

STU: You can give to whatever you want. I'm just saying if it were good, you wouldn't need to be given to.

GLENN: Not necessarily. There are things worth preserving that for instance, for instance, Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon, that is that's not taking any government money, but that takes a lot of money to be able to preserve that.

STU: People love it and they demand it and they give money to it because they appreciate it.

GLENN: Yeah, that's the same thing that the galleries are doing.

STU: No, no, I mean I'm not criticizing people for giving to a gallery. I just say that most of the time, many times. I mean, people can just purchase the things.

GLENN: I disagree with you but that's

STU: People wouldn't purchase the things that they

GLENN: Why are you antiart?

STU: I'm antiart? I'm antiart when it comes to government money to art.

GLENN: Oh, no, I am, too. But I'm pretty much anti everything when it comes to government money.

On the Basis of Sex. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you probably didn't expect those five words to come out of me this morning. No, that's not my version of a clickbait headline to get you to pay attention — although that probably just happened — but this is the title to the new movie based on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

RELATED: Here's the Problem With the New Ruth Bader Ginsburg Documentary

Progressives and liberals have been hovering over YouTube like a pack of rabid wolves, anxiously awaiting the first trailer to drop. And — three days — they got their wish. Something in the last few seconds caught my ear. Watch:

Now my first thought after hearing that went something like this: The word "freedom" is literally the fifth frigging word in the first sentence of the First Amendment. It shows up for the second time just two sentences later. How do you screw that up? I always assumed that liberal Hollywood movie makers had never really read the Constitution, but this is just sad.

But my second thought was that maybe they don't consider the Bill of Rights actually part of the Constitution. However, according to the National Constitution Center, the Bill of Rights officially became part of the Constitution — not a separate document — when it was ratified in 1791. This is rather easy to fact check, so there's really no excuse here.

But then I had another thought. Either liberal Hollywood forgot that the Constitution changed in 1791, or they actually prefer the vaguer pre-1791 version of the Constitution where God-given rights can be excluded if the state so pleases. Think about it. The Bill of Rights is the single greatest roadblock to the radical Left's "progress." Do you hate the fact that private gun ownership encourages self reliance and personal freedom? Do you also hate the fact that dissenting views, opinions and speech can't be silenced and crushed? Then the Bill of Rights is a clear and present danger to your agenda. It's enemy number one.

The new Left that is radically moving toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791.

You see, the new Left that is radically moving further toward the extreme absolutely abhors the year 1791. They wish it never happened. The Bill of Rights is a constant reminder that some FREEDOMS can't be given by the government, they're granted by GOD. And that thought — you being aware of that — scares the hell out of them.

Now, it's possible I thought too much into this. It's also possible the screen writer made a simple mistake and thought Ruth Bader Ginsburg was actually born before 1791, figuring it would be a nice tip of the hat to her longevity. I can actually see how you could make that mistake. But it's also possible that this is a sign of the times we live in.

The Bill of Rights is under attack, maybe more now than ever. It's never been more important to let the Constitution of 1791 be our guide, true north and lighthouse.

UPDATE: Here's how the discussion went on radio. Watch the video below.

How did this slip by?

The Left has been foaming at the mouth waiting for this movie to drop and when the trailer finally hit the interwebs, it ended with an embarrassing factual error about the Constitution.

What will happen when the Titan kneels?

You can tell that the NFL season is approaching because you can hear the whining from highly-paid athletes as they prepare their kneepads for some kneeling.

In May, the NFL instated a policy that penalizes players who take a knee during the national anthem.

"A club will be fined by the League if its personnel are on the field and do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem," the statement said. "The Commissioner will impose appropriate discipline on league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem."

Tennessee Titan's defensive end Jurrell Casey has decided that he will continue his whining and kneeling.

"I'm going to take my fine," Casey said in an interview. "It is what it is, I ain't going to let them stop me from doing what I want to do. If they want to have these battles between players and organizations, this is the way it's going to be."

Maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics.

He added that "At the end of the day, we got to do a job, but I will continue to use my platform to keep on speaking up."

Yes, he does have a job to do. And that job is playing football. His bosses have made it clear that political activism is not part of the job. Who knows, maybe Casey can find work elsewhere. I hear that Universities love to hire self-righteous ranting lunatics. There's also Starbucks. They need a self-righteous CEO.

All anyone can talk about right now is Russia and collusion, and for good reason. Special Counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers for cyber attacks and the hacking of cyber-systems in energy, nuclear, water, and manufacturing sectors which you can read about here.

RELATED: There are three tribes when it comes to Trump and Russia: Which tribe do you belong to?

The Trump-Russia scandal, in a word, is maniacal. There are many moving parts that are very hard to solve — or simply don't want to be solved. All of these are "mysteries wrapped in an enigma," asserted Glenn on Wednesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program."



From the curious case of Imran Awan to the hacking of DNC servers to "Russian" meddling in elections via social media, all of these deserve scrutiny.

On today's episode, Glenn examined seven scandals that make up the Russia connection:

  1. Russian operatives who used social media to divide Americans during the 2016 election.
  2. The meeting at Trump Tower between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
  3. The Fusion GPS Dossier funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
  4. Voter fraud in Illinois.
  5. Hillary Clinton's emails.
  6. Imran Awan. Awan was an IT staffer for Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives who was part of a federal investigation and was arrested on bank fraud charges.
  7. Lastly, the 2016 DNC email leaks.

When it comes to Donald Trump, Glenn Beck argues that there are three tribes that categorize the way people examine him regarding his foreign and domestic policy.

Tribe one is the #Resistance. They are the ones who believe that everything President Trump does is bad. They're also the ones who call for impeachment and who label President Trump a "treasonous traitor" even before a summit with a foreign leader takes place.

RELATED: Russia hacking Hillary's emails is no laughing matter

Those, according to Glenn's analysis, include groups like Think Progress, who published an article suggesting that women's rights would be rolled back if the President's SCOTUS nominee is confirmed by the Senate. This tribe also includes progressive talking heads and far Left publications and politicians like The New York Times and Hillary Clinton.

Tribe two are those who defend the President and his actions at all costs. He can do no wrong. These are the people who deny the President's mistakes. They believe the President is a master chess player and everyone else is a pawn in Trump's game.

Both who operate in tribes one and two maintain a "win at all costs" mentality. They don't care what happens as long as their side wins. Glenn calls this a "cult of personality madness."

Tribe three are those who are "free thinkers." These people question the President with boldness and aim for intellectual honesty when evaluating the President's policies and behavior.

Glenn believes tribe one and tribe two are smaller than tribe three.

So, what do all these tribes have to do with Trump and the Russians? Find out in the clip below.
