Pelosi: Iraq is a failure

GLENN: You know, I can't take another person telling me how horrible things are going and how we failed in Iraq, how the war is lost but the troops are successful. In what? In what? Getting dressed every morning? Catching their plane? Getting over there? Surviving the insanity that is Washington? What exactly have they succeeded in if the war is a failure, if the surge has not worked? I can't take it anymore. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have done nothing.


 


 Did you see the quote from George Clooney on Darfur? I actually, I cheered. I cheered for George Clooney, and I never thought I would do that. George Clooney was chastising the UN on Darfur. He said either give the UN troops the equipment that they need to protect the citizens and themselves or have the decency to pull them home.


 


Now, does anybody question that George Clooney wants to solve Darfur? Is there any question that he cares about the people of Darfur? I believe George Clooney actually cares about the people of Darfur. Where he goes wrong is he trusts the United Nations. He thinks, in all of these globalists, a lot of them are sitting in congress and are running for President now, they think the solutions are going to come from the United Nations. The problems, a lot of them, are coming from the United Nations. Certainly the solutions are not. And that's what conservatives -- that's what I've been saying on the war. Fight it with everything you've got. Give them and the people of Iraq a fighting chance or pull them home. Have the common decency to pull them home. The Democrats have done nothing, nothing but how many troops are being killed day after day after day. Before the surge happened, oh, my gosh. Here's another one. Look, why can't we show the picture of this dead marine? They did everything they could to play up the number of dead. They did everything they could do to play down or completely ignore the things like Iraq's first elections, the Constitution, the line at the voting booths. Instead all we got to hear from Democrats was the latest death count. The media made huge deals out of the numbers hitting 500, then it was 1,000, as if 999 was less important than 1,000. But 1,000 is a milestone! Then when the death count started going down, that wasn't the story. Where is that? Do you see that? Democrats shifted their rhetoric to no political progress in Iraq.


 


 I've seen Election '08 stories now saying Republicans must paint Democrats as defeatists in order to have a chance in November. Is painting them as defeatists, isn't that the truth? You don't have to paint them as defeatists. Just tell them -- use their own words. How will America hold its head up? By pulling out of Iraq in 60 days. Will we be applauding President Obama while Iraq falls back into the hands of not terrorists but extremists? Will we really, ladies, be able to hold our head up and say, look at that? President Obama, President Clinton. Look how great this is. Look at how many women are now living under Sharia law, and we helped it happen. This is why congress and the President are at all-time lows, both of them, because they've allowed something as important to our country as war to become a political issue. It's not a political issue. It wasn't for me. Was it for you? I don't care if you're a liberal, a Democrat, a conservative or a Republican. Was it really a political issue? They've maybe been to something that -- it's almost like these guys don't really, really care. They just want to squeeze the most political gain out of it. The surge hasn't worked? What is your evidence that the surge hasn't worked? Even if you're against war, once it starts, shouldn't you be for winning it? Get over your sour grapes about losing to George W. Bush. Wake up! He's not running anymore. And a lot of us are saying, thank goodness he's not running anymore. Until we see the clowns that are replacing him.


 


You need to wake up. We're about to do the same thing all over again. This wouldn't be the first time that we've pulled out of Iraq. Remember the first Gulf War when we encouraged the people out of Iraq to rise up and take down Saddam? They wanted freedom. They could taste it. So they listened. We won their hearts and minds. They rose up. When we left, they got slaughtered. Remember the mass graves that we found in Iraq? Yeah, those mass graves, that was them. Those are the one that stood up after we told them and then George Bush did nothing because it wasn't politically expedient.


 


Now Nancy Pelosi's failure that is Iraq, we find this letter from Al-Qaeda. In this letter from Al-Qaeda, their leaders admit, and I quote, we are in crisis, there is panic and fear and an unwillingness to fight.


 


Well, what is causing the unwillingness to fight? Well, a big part of it is something called CLCs. CLCs. Have you read about that anywhere? Have you heard about that anywhere? Has Nancy Pelosi talked about just our failure or has she mentioned the CLCs? The media is doing everything they can to ignore CLCs. I'll try to explain what they are. They are groups called concerned local citizens. They are people, Iraqis, who live in Iraq who are fed up with Al-Qaeda. They are fed up with anything but freedom and they're growing in numbers every single day. It is becoming more and more difficult for the terrorists to blend in because the CLCs, the concerned local citizens on the ground are ratting them out. We are starting to win the philosophical argument. We are winning the hearts and minds of ordinary Iraqis. We already had them but they didn't trust us. They were afraid we were going to pull out. The hearts and minds that needed to be won over because of the fresh memory of the last time we told them to rise up. They were slaughtered. Now they are starting to rise up. Finally that we have the troops there and we're holding and we're clearing. Now the CLCs, the concerned local citizens, the average person on the street that doesn't trust their government just like we don't trust our government, they are taking it into their own hands and they are looking to the only person that -- you know what, I've got to tell you. The only person that draws a federal paycheck that I trust. They look to the same person, the troop, the U.S. soldier. They don't look into our politicians. They don't trust our politicians. They don't trust their politicians. Why? Because they're corrupt. So the CLCs are looking to the U.S. Marine. They are looking to the Army. They are looking to the Rangers. They are looking at anybody with an American flag on their shoulder and saying over there, there's a bad guy over there. That's progress. That's success. And guess what happens when we pull out of Iraq? How do you think those CLCs are going to feel? Where do you think those CLCs are going to be found? The terrorists begin their romp through the country. They become revitalized with our departure and start making mass graves filled with CLCs that were trying to help? Democrats talk about how George W. Bush has ruined the credibility of the United States overseas. I'm not a credibility expert but I am a thinker. If you cut and run, if you leave these people out who are growing in numbers, we lose a lot more than our credibility in Iraq. We're going to lose countless, nameless, faceless heroes in Iraq who are helping rout out terrorists. I wonder if Nancy Pelosi, when they start burying these people by the thousands will deem that a failure by the United States. I wonder if George Clooney might just pick up the phones once instead of talking to the United Nations, would just pick up the phone to Nancy Pelosi and say, have the decency, Nancy Pelosi, to give them everything they've got to protect the citizens and themselves or have the decency to pull them home. She only wants to do one side because that's really what's popular.


 


Meanwhile over in London, the archbishop of Canterbury has said it's now inevitable that the U.K. will have Sharia law. But he said not to worry, it won't be the beheading kind of Sharia law, yeah. It will just be the marriage Sharia law. It will just be the financial Sharia law. It will just be what happens in the homes Sharia law. I don't know how he counts honor killings out of that kind of Sharia law, but he says it's inevitable because they already overlook polygamy. They already overlook divorces when a man can say, I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you. It's inevitable now according to the archbishop of Canterbury, and he doesn't necessarily think it's a bad thing because be-headings won't follow for sure. He now says that Sharia law is inevitable.


 


By the way, I would invite the archbishop of Canterbury to stop reading the tales and maybe start reading the history of the Sudan. That was a country that said Sharia law is inevitable. But don't worry. It will only be the veils, it will only be the financial part. It won't be the be-headings, the exact same story. But just like -- you know what, it kills me. Hollywood people and all these liberals, all these just great thinkers, they don't understand that history repeats itself almost exactly over and over and over again. Yet why should we expect them to understand that? Because we're the ones that go to Hollywood movies and we say, why can't they come up with a new story? This is exact same movie that they made four years ago. They don't even recognize that they can't make a new story! They can't recognize themselves that there are only like four movies that have ever been made, and half of them star Gene Hackman and the other half star Bruce Willis. They don't understand that they are making the same damn story over and over again. So why would they think that history repeats itself?

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
