Comrade Update! - Trickle Down Communism

GLENN: Comrade!


 STU: Yes, comrade!


 GLENN: Good news from the Western front!


 STU: I bet there is.


 GLENN: Talk radio is starting to suck beyond belief because they're adopting our Soviet principles.


 STU: Soviet talk radio.


 GLENN: Yes.


 STU: In the motherland.


 GLENN: Yes.


 STU: That was low quality radio.


 GLENN: That's good low quality radio only to be found in a socialist nation.


 STU: And soon hopefully the Fairness Doctrine might come back and they can tell us exactly what we can and cannot say! On the Western front.


 GLENN: Yes. Comrade, we have been working towards this for a very, very long time. I remember, comrade, back in the Fifties. We looked at each other wearing those furry hats.


 STU: Yes.


 GLENN: The star on them.


 STU: Kind of stumbling over really cheap vodka.


 GLENN: Very cheap vodka.


 STU: Free vodka.


 GLENN: For a while there, there was more vodka in my bloodstream than blood but that's a whole different story.


 STU: There was blood in your vodka?


 GLENN: Yes. Do you remember when we were planning the destruction of the West? Those were the glory days.


 STU: Those were the -- you mean when we were doing it overtly?


 GLENN: Yeah, when we were actually getting together and we were like, comrade, we've got another way to destroy the West.


 STU: Those were the days.


 GLENN: And remember when we thought we should start small and then just let it trickle down, kind of like that, what was his face, Reagan with his trickle down economics.


 STU: Oh, the enemy.


 GLENN: Trickle-down communism. It's fantastic. So what we decided to do, if you remember, comrade, was --


 STU: I do remember.


 GLENN: -- let's bleed them dry. Let's help them make just stupid decision after stupid decision after stupid decision. We could use our tools like the unions and get them into all kinds of pensions and all kinds of special programs. It would be fantastic. Oh. Well, comrade, good news from the Western front, the Far West. We've got a city in California now that is -- are you ready? The first to go bankrupt. It's fantastic.


 STU: Comrade.


 GLENN: What?


 STU: Has Dennis Kucinich got another mayoral job?


 GLENN: No, he's been busy, he's been busy on the federal level. Almost had him, too. Damn, those space aliens.


 Here's the story, comes out of California. There's a financial crisis now. More than three years after the state took over the city's debt-ridden public schools, the state did --


 STU: Should we just -- are we just passing over that part, comrade?


 GLENN: What?


 STU: That the state took over?


 GLENN: Took over their debt-ridden public schools?


 STU: What, no, this was all part of the plan. This is fantastic.


 GLENN: As soon as the state crumbles, it can be kicked up to the Feds. Then when the Feds, when they crumble, we're there to pick up the pieces, comrade!


 STU: Oh, the Politburo can just take over.


 GLENN: So three years after the state took over the city's debt-ridden public schools as a result of snowballing police and firefighter salaries and overtime expenses coupled with plummeting tax revenue from a weak housing market, this city is finally completely out of cash. Spending $10 million more than they received in tax revenue. They would take in $4 million; they would spend $10 million. The city council and the mayor have met on it and they said, we've just been making mistakes for a very long time. Quote: We've been spending money that we haven't had for a very long time. It was only a matter of time before this happened.




 STU: Oh, comrade.


 GLENN: This is great news.


 STU: Comrade, you know what's great about it, too?


 GLENN: What?


 STU: Is that we've convinced the people in the Western Front that competition just won't work in schools. There shouldn't be vouchers and people choosing good schools and rewarding them.


 GLENN: Of course not.


 STU: No, we should just give these people all of the money so they can spend two and a half times that amount and then fail. This is fantastic. And the best part is they are not even going to get a good education with that money.


 GLENN: Now listen, my comrade friend. The best news is this is happening in California. We have California on the brink of disaster. If California fails, they will shove all that debt to the federal government, and the federal government says we'll have to save California because California, we can't let all those people fail out there, we can't let them lose their house, we can't let them not have fire and police and school. We've got to take it on as a nation and we'll shoulder the burden together. Then it will just be a giant domino effect.


 STU: Let's make sure I understand, comrade, because this seems to be working well.


 GLENN: Yeah.


 STU: So Government controls the schools.


 GLENN: Yes.


 STU: And then the government-controlled schools fail. So the government-controlled state takes over the government-controlled school and then the government-controlled federal takes over the government-controlled state which overtook the government-controlled school and all of them failed.


 GLENN: And then, and then when it all fails, then the global government can take on everyone's debt and we can share the pain and the wealth. Comrade, great, great news from the Western front today! Oh, that's great. (Gunshot).

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences


  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.


  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.


  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
