NY Times Yellow Journalism

GLENN: Let me say this. John McCain, you cheated on your wife? Now you're on record denying it. You cheated on your wife? You think you had problems with conservatives before, you're done for all time. Next accusation, McCain gave special report to the lobbyist causes. They offer zero evidence. The worst they seem to have on him is that he wrote letters that supported positions her client supported, but they were also positions that McCain had publicly supported his entire career. So how is that a special favor? That's like somebody cozying up to me. It's like, "Glenn, will you do a radio show today? Okay." Am I doing them a special favor? I do a radio show every day! Then they dredge up the Charles Keating story. McCain was part of the Keating Five. Why this is news now 20 years later is beyond me. This is something that maybe the New York Times maybe should have considered when they were endorsing him! He was part of the original Keating Five. These are the five senators that met with banking regulators to ask them to back off Keating. It ended the careers of three senators. McCain got away with a slap on the wrist saying that he just had bad judgment on the incident.


 


 This is a rehash of a 20-year-old story but with the problems that are going on in the banking community right now, I'm telling you this is going to be in 527 commercials, you are going to see this everywhere. "If you can't trust John McCain during the last banking schedule -- 20 years ago -- how could you possibly trust him now." This story is going to be retold almost daily until November by the media and Obama and the Clinton operatives. Regardless of the truth, it will probably be effective as McCain tries to make the case that he's always standing up to special interests and yet he didn't 20 years ago. The Keating Five. Call John McCain's office and tell him we don't want any of these kinds of banking scandals." And it's going to be effective.


 


 Next point is the shamelessness of the New York Times. It is beyond argument. I hate to sound like Al Gore here but the hate is over on the shamelessness of the New York Times. The Times itself says that it was asking McCain for interviews on this story back in December. In case you remember, December would have been a good time when we still had decent candidates to pick from. They had this story. We still had Romney, Giuliani, Thompson. We could have chosen those guys instead, but the Times sat on the story for months. Why? Because pinhead dopes all around the country were voting for John McCain because they said he's the most likely to win in a general election.


 


 If the New York Times would have done this story back in December, would we have a different frontrunner today? My answer is yes. Stu says maybe.


 


 STU: Yeah, I would agree -- like, I would agree if there was something really to this story, which at this point I don't see anything to the story. So --


 


 GLENN: It's enough -- look. One of Rudy Giuliani's problems was everybody knew his family was a nightmare. The reports, there's nothing to that story.


 


 STU: Yeah.


 


 GLENN: You don't know -- his son hates him. Well, give my son a few years.


 


 STU: He's going to hate -- oh, God, he's going to hate you.


 


 GLENN: I mean, I've got four children. I think three of them are on the fence already.


 


 STU: Definitely, no doubt about it.


 


 GLENN: I mean, for the love of Pete. So you're -- what? Your 20-year-old son hates you? How could that happen? Nothing to this story. But the appearance of scandal, the number of scandals. Bernard Kerik.


 


 STU: Oh, yeah. What about his recordkeeping when he was going to Long Island for --


 


 GLENN: Yeah, yeah.


 


 STU: That story was nothing.


 


 GLENN: Nothing.


 


 STU: Nothing. And it still hurt him.


 


 GLENN: Exactly right. This would have been like wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You knew with Rudy Giuliani that the campaign that was running against him could come out with a bunch of hearsay nonsense. Some of it may have been true. Some of it may not have been. This John McCain stuff, maybe it's true. Maybe it's not. I don't know. He denies it. He's -- what was it? He's a patriot warrior. What was it the New York Times --


 


 STU: Maverick warrior.


 


 GLENN: A maverick warrior, a patriot, a man who's beyond question. So I don't know. Maybe the New York Times should take his word for it! They waited until the decision was made and there were no other candidates to choose.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn Beck explain what this means for prices and for our economy.
