Not Watching

GLENN: Putting the radio back into Radio City, hello, you sick twisted freak. Welcome to the program. My name is Glenn Beck. From the frozen, snowy northern hitherland. My goodness, we've got -- they are saying now maybe 12 inches of snow. And let me tell you something. There is nothing better than anywhere from one to 12 inches of snow in the Manhattan area. It doesn't affect traffic or people at all. It's fantastic. But the good news is now we can be trapped into our homes and into apartments all through the weekend so we can just, we can have anticipation build for the Oscars. I don't know about you, but I'm not going to watch the Oscars. So there you go.



Celebrate the Oscars by purchasing our exclusive, 'Michael Moore is Fat' t-shirt!

Did you see that Michael Moore is, you know, debating on who he's going to take to the Oscars? I told you yesterday he was thinking -- you know, he said, "It would really cause a lot of controversy if I brought Castro." Yes, I guess it would. It's like Steven Spielberg. "Wouldn't it be great if I showed up, give my award for Schindler's List if I could just bring Hitler. Wouldn't that be great?" Oh. You know what, I haven't -- and maybe it's just me. I don't think it is. Have movies gotten worse? Are we just onto Hollywood? Is it that we expect to be preached at in Hollywood? Is that what it is? I don't know. I just don't go to the movies anymore. And I used to -- I was a guy who used to go to two movies on a Saturday. I love movies. I just don't see them anymore. I don't know what it is. What was that, Charlie Wilson's War? I can't tell you how many people said, oh, you've got to go see Charlie Wilson's War. You'll love it. No, no, uh-uh, not going to see it. And I know now from friends who have seen it, it has nothing to do with the war, it's not preachy at all, I just don't trust it. What is it, there will be blood? Oh, it's about the evil oil companies? Supposed to be great. I just don't really want to see anything Hollywood made about evil oil companies. You know what I mean? It's like, honestly it's like expecting, you know, the American people to go out and see movies done by Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity. I mean, there will be a certain population that will go but not really. I mean, you know what I mean? It's from one point of view. Unfortunately unlike those movies, these movies that they're making are so wildly out of step with the average person in America. Nobody -- who wants to go see that? I swear to you. And even the advertisements. The advertisement, the way they -- what was the movie that came out? Was it Charlie Wilson's War? Stu, do you remember? What was the movie that came out? I think it was Charlie Wilson's War that was so misadvertised that it just seemed like, oh, no. It's a propaganda movie.

STU: You might be right on that. I thought it was one of Chris Balfe's, I think saw Michael Clayton and was talking about it like that which was the George Clooney flick.

GLENN: Yeah. And what was it, what was the message in that? And he said that it was the -- he said, I saw that -- I just didn't want to see it because it was a message movie and as it turns out, it's not a message movie. But it's got George Clooney in it. It's got to have a message in it. You know, we're working on our Christmas stage show and we have a Broadway director that we're trying to do work with and my daughter was just in a play, Stephen Sondheim play and, you know, she was in it, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. We went to it and I was talking to this director and he said, what play was she in? And I told him and he said, oh, I hate that play. And I said, really? And he said, yes, I don't understand it. And I said, what do you mean? And he said, what's the message behind it? And I'm like, boy, we're talking to the wrong director. I said, what do you mean what's the message behind it? He said, what does this represent? What does that represent? What is the message behind it? And I said, that's why I love this play. There were no messages. I have no idea if there was a message in it and if it was a message, I think I kind of agree with it. Stop with the messages. Oh, it drives me crazy. And so you watch these things. They even -- it's almost like they're intentionally trying to sabotage themselves. Were you watching these? You know it's like if they remade movies now, you know, they would position them in such a way -- okay, try this on for size. "The two biggest issues in America today collide together for the first time on the big screen: Global warming and healthcare. You'll be gripping the edge of your seat as you take a journey with one Midwestern woman's wild escape from global warming as she flees into exile and meets up with three amazing friends with one common plight: They all need medical care and organs to survive. But a struggle to live without any universal healthcare coverage. Will a Democrat get elected in time to give them universal healthcare? Will the Government help and stop tornadoes caused by global warming, or will the evil Republicans give tax credits to the wealthiest 1% and let them all die? See the Wizard of Oz." That's the way they would do it. Now it would be -- now you would watch the Wizard of Oz and the wizard would be something, you know, some evil Republican who had never any intention of helping these people. He hates little people. The Government, he would just be taking all the money for himself. The tin man and the scarecrow, it would all represent some sort of universal health coverage.

Do you have any music? Because I've got a couple of these. Do you have any music? Roll it if you have it, Dan.

STU: Hold on one second. We're having a tech problem as usual.

GLENN: That is the crappiest network show ever. Has anybody -- have we reminded anyone that we're a network show? Oh, and you know what? I just forgot. We're number 3. Number 2 tries harder. Number 3 stinks.

STU: Yeah, number 2 and number 1, they have all their stuff totally working.

GLENN: All right. Do we have that computer working? Otherwise we're just going to move on.

STU: Yeah, he's loading it right now on computer Number 19. We're going to try it.

GLENN: Computer Number 19. What happened to it?

STU: It's magical.

GLENN: Here we go. Are you ready? Go ahead.

VOICE: Power-seeking politicians have no mercy when it comes to starting war for oil, but what happens when technology expands beyond the atmosphere, when space travel is as easy as activating the hyperdrive? The endless potential for power and control of the universe becomes too much for evil politicians to resist. Entire planets are destroyed. Billions of lives are lost, and military industrial complex rules the universe. This summer see Star Wars.

GLENN: Huh? Now how much do you want to see "Star Wars"?

STU: That worked perfectly, I think.

GLENN: Never! Try this one. Go ahead with it.

VOICE: When giant bank corporations have their backs up against the wall, they don't take it lying down. Follow one good local man's journey as he's forced by an evil corporation to jump off a snowy bridge and kill himself, only to have an angel save him and show him how horrible the world would be without him. If only everyone who was forced to commit suicide because of an evil giant corporation had an angel, which by the way don't exist -- save their life. See It's a Wonderful Life.

STU: I think they should have mentioned the sub prime crisis in there. That's the only thing.

GLENN: "You're losing your house. One man doesn't care." Try this one. "A common species with one uncommon characteristic, a tiny little difference in pigmentation has caused a world of hate. This winter don't miss the film that challenges conventional wisdom and shows black and white working together with all the gray areas in between. See Casablanca." All right, that's really only there because there's hate in it and it is black and white.

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!
