Glenn picks apart a call

GLENN: Go ahead and play this, Dan, and I want to show you, I want to show you how predictable liberals really are in the people who are falling in line behind these programs like universal healthcare, how their thinking is so unbelievably consistently inconsistent.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: I don't have policies, I have opinions. But it's America. You can disagree all you want. Okay.

(Audio clip plays)

GLENN: Okay, stop, stop. Let's refer to the war, which is -- did she say a trillion dollars there? Which is a trillion dollars. Stu, do you have the actual number? Which is a trillion dollars, and it never had to happen at all. Got it? First of all, 70% of American people when we went to war were absolutely for it. The congress also for it, and you don't have to take my word for it. You can look at all of the people like Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and look at their actual quotes when Bill Clinton was in office and what they said then. He had to be stopped. Then you can also look after they had been briefed about all of the things that they said that he did have the weapons of mass destruction, et cetera, et cetera. The facts are there. I know nobody wants to look at them, but the facts are actually there. But she's not actually calling for the war. This is step number one in a liberal Progressive argument. Start with the war. That way you get that premise out there and you already start in on the war but then change the subject right away until you start to lose. Then go back to the war. Start with the war. That's what she did. Now she said, so let's just start with that. Go ahead.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop. Stop, stop. So let's start with the war. Okay. The war has nothing to do with healthcare unless she's trying to tie the -- this is important -- unless she's trying to tie the trillions of dollars in her words that have been spent on a useless war that we didn't have to fight in the first place, okay, that we cannot afford. Remember, we cannot afford this war. Got it? So maybe she's tying it to the war we couldn't afford and when people go on disability, then money is taken from them. I don't even understand that but I would imagine the only time money's ever taken from me is when I'm held up every April 15th. That's the only time my money is taken from me, but maybe that's just me. I doubt that's her point.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. So now we are beyond just healthcare. If you can't get healthcare, you are going to go on disability because your situation is going to get worse. So in other words, let's say I'm a soccer player but a poorly paid soccer player and I've got a foot infection but I can't afford healthcare. My foot infection is going to eventually end up as toe rot. I'm going to lose my foot and now I'm on disability. I think that's the argument but again these arguments are very hard to understand or follow because they're always bringing in, like, six different things and they always start with... the war.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop, stop. She doesn't have to read something that she's for. So if you're for it, you don't have to read about it. That is yet another interesting comment that you hear all the time in certain ways from liberal Progressives. They don't have to do any research. They don't want to hear anything about global warming. They don't have to read it. Their mind is made up. They don't have to know. They don't need anymore information. There is nothing new. There's nothing to see here, people. Move on. She doesn't have to read the "New York Times," and she also won't allow me to tell her about the New York Times.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Stop. Stop, I love this. "Why! Why is Sally Muckenfutch without a face? Why does her dad not have health insurance? Why? Why? Why? Why is Bill Hutchensonsonberg, he lost his job as a shoe manufacturer. Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?" We're talking about one person that's not acceptable to a liberal Progressive. You should let liberal Progressives know that that's not what we do. But the New York Times article was not talking about one individual. It was one case that showed that there are a lot of people out there that gamble with their health. They're young and so they think, I don't need healthcare; I'm not going to spend the money. Well, if you're gambling with your own health, guess what. You lose. The house isn't going to pay you for gambling and losing. No.

(Audio clip plays.)

GLENN: Okay, stop, here's the next one. First of all let's just totally inflate everything. Let's make this much worse than it is. Now there are trillions of people -- she said it twice, trillions. I asked her again for clarification later. Trillions of people that are in need of healthcare. Wow, that's a lot. I thought it was 49 million people but that number as I'll explain later not even accurate. But now it's trillions of people. And also, I haven't walked in her shoes. I don't know. She was one of those people. I wasn't. I must not be one of those people because I'm rich. Sucks that I happened to be very, very poor eight years ago. Really sucks that I couldn't even afford the braces for my children's teeth ten years ago. Wow, it sucks. It's almost like I've lived in those shoes. It's almost like I've walked in those shoes.

Here's the thing. You get into an argument with a liberal Progressive. They're going to start with the war. They're going to tell you about how it's wrong and how we shouldn't have fought it and if we can afford that, we can afford this program. Yet they will tell you we can't afford the war. You need to hold them to, we can't afford the war, we can't afford anything else. You can't afford the war, period. It's never worked with my wife to say, honey, we can't afford -- we can't afford that new car. That's why we should get a new sports car. It doesn't work that way. If we can't afford this, we certainly can't afford something that's more expensive. Also, they won't let you use individual examples. Fine. Then don't use individual examples because you can use actual stats and facts, but don't let them use individual examples. Also, you've never walked a mile in their shoes. I'll bet you most of the people have not walked a mile in those shoes, that are making that argument. I bet you're closer to walking in those shoes, if you haven't walked in those shoes yourself, than they ever have. The difference is you never asked the government for help. You just did it because you believe in you. They believe in the government. I'm past believing in the government thing. I kind of got -- roll the dice on me and you.

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!
